IT sneak-peak

Improving Permission Logic

The Zabbix developer team is currently working on an improvement in the permission logic. Currently if a user has "Read-Only" and "Read-Write" permissions to a host, it will be "Read-Only". To make permission management easier, starting from Zabbix 2.2 "Read-Write" permissions will override "Read-Only" the same way as "Deny" does. The feature is currently being tested and will become available soon.
