User-specific permissions are extra permissions assigned to specific users who may need to perform additional tasks that fall beyond their blanket permission level (i.e. Basic, Job Admin, Site Admin). Unlike job-based permissions, which define a user's permissions on specified jobs only, user-specific permissions impact a user’s abilities across all of Greenhouse Recruiting. By configuring user-specific permissions, your organization can tailor individual user accounts to perform certain tasks without providing users extraneous permissions.

In this article, we will cover: 


General User-Specific Permissions 

General user-specific permissions are tied to the user's blanket permission level (i.e. Basic, Job Admin, Site Admin) and are not the same across all permission levels. That is, the available general user-specific permissions for Site Admin users are not the same as those for Job Admin or Basic users.

Developer Permissions

Unlike general user-specific permissions, which are dependent on the user's assigned permission level (i.e. Basic, Job Admin, or Site Admin), developer permissions are the same across all three permission levels. Developer permissions are user-specific permissions which allow a user to manage an organization's APIs, webhooks, and certain integrations.
