Dashboard group and dashboard permissions are not additive. Depending on how permissions
are defined on an dashboard, dashboard group permissions may not apply.
If a dashboard belongs to a dashboard group, any view
permissions defined on the dashboard override all view permissions on the dashboard group.
Permissions on the dashboard group level are not visible from a dashboard's Share panel. When
changing the view permissions for a dashboard that is part of a group, always review the
permissions for the dashboard group to ensure users do not lose access. For more information, see
Dashboard permissions scenarios.
For example: The dashboard group Support Dashboards
contains the dashboards Open Incidents and Incident Metrics. The dashboard group has view
permissions for the group Support. When you give view permissions to user John Dee for the
dashboard Incident Metrics, the group Support can no longer see that dashboard because view
permissions on the dashboard override all view permissions on the dashboard group.
