2.From the Name Type drop-down list, select a type of right. Rights are granted to the entity selected. The type of right can be User, Group, Domain, or Everyone.
3.In the Entry Name box, type a name for the new entry. This name appears in the Name column. The name entered must be valid for the computer where the Vault is running.
4.From the Rights drop-down list, select the actual rights granted to the given user, group, domain, or everyone. The following are the selections:

Full Control - Allows the user, group, domain, or everyone to have full control over a selected Vault.

Store/Retrieve - Allows the user, group, domain, or everyone to store and retrieve data from the Vault.

Retrieve - Allows user, group, domain, or everyone to retrieve (but not store) data from the Vault.

None - Blocks the user, group, domain, or everyone from doing anything with the Vault.

5.Click OK.
6.Use the up and down arrows to move the new entry up or down in the list to change the priority the new entry is given in relation to other users, groups, and domains.

Phoenix VCM reads rights from top to bottom, checking for access in the following order: User, Group, Domain, World. If a match is found at the User level, the other types (Group, Domain, World) are not checked; if a match is not found at the User level, the Group entries will be checked, starting with the topmost Group entry in the list. The same pattern holds true for the remaining types. Note that Vault rights and media rights are hierarchical, with media rights being subordinate to overall Vault permissions.

7.Repeat the steps above to add even more entries, or click OK to save them.
