Magento 2 Admin Permission Reference

Here's a quick reference to help Magento administrators when they're configuring what admin screens should be enabled for various business roles. For the most part, the permission (aka "Resource") required for access to each screen corresponds to the path of the admin screen. But this isn't always the case. There are a number of screens that have been moved around, such as "Customers > Customer Groups" so the name of the permission no longer matches the location of the backend screen. Also, a number of permissions are used for multiple screens. For example, the "Catalog" permission is used for "Catalog" and "Catalog > Inventory".

This permission reference was generated from Magento Commerce 2.2.2 (previously "Enterprise Edition"). There will be some slight differences for you if you are using Magento Open Source (previously "Community Edition") or a different version of Magento 2. If you are using Magento 1, do not use this reference.

If you are trying to determine which permissions to set for API access, check out our Magento 2 API Permissions Reference instead.

In the following list, the first item is the path of the admin screen, and the second is the path of the permission required to access it.
