The Permissions view lists permissions that have been granted to the system object that is currently selected. The Permissions view is part of the Properties, Permissions, and Audit Trail tab group in the Classic perspective.
These permissions take the form of an access control list (ACL). The ACL specifies the roles that have access to the object and the types of actions each role is authorized to perform.
For an extensive discussion of permissions, see Access control overview. For a detailed description of using the Permissions view to define permissions for system objects, see Defining permissions for a system object.
