CPQ has a standard set of permissions that contain the access rights to fields and objects available in CPQ. These permission sets define whether the User can read, create, edit, and delete the records of an object and its fields. These permissions and the impact they have on the User are described below:

ReadAllows the User to view the existing records created for the object.
CreateAllows the User to create a record for the object.
EditAllows the User to edit the existing record of the object.
DeleteAllows the User to delete a record of the object.
View AllAllows the User to read and create records for an object.
Modify AllAllows the User to edit and delete records for an object.

The following table lists the standard permission sets available in CPQ and their usage.
