User Permissions allows the Dealership to allocate access or restrict access to certain sections of Blackpurl for particular groups of Users.

For example:

In the Dealership, the Unit Sales staff do not need access to Account Settings but they need access to Customer Order Units.  Our process would be:

  • Create new Group for User Permission Group - Unit Sales in Blackpurl
  • Assign the relevant permissions to suit what this group would and would not have permission to access
  • Assign the relevant Users to this group


  1. From the Blackpurl Header > click on User-added image > System settings
User-added image
  1. From the System Settings Dashboard > click on User-added image

       User Permission Group you want

Just start typing the User Permission Group name in the search field and the search result will load for you
to make the selection

2.    A list of the current User Permission Groups currently in Blackpurl

3.   To create a new User Permission Group - click on User-added image

TIP: If permission changes are required for a particular User Permission Group, click on the relevant User Permission Group icon and it will take you to the permission settings for amendments

  1. For this example, we are going to create a new User Permission Group - Unit Sales, work through the list of permissions and then decide which users need to be assigned to this group.  
Click on User-added image for the Create a New Group Window to pop up.

If you want them to have that permission, change the toggle from  User-added image to User-added image.In some instances, if the permission is enabled, new options may appear for you to make further decisions ie if the User Permission Group can have the access to Create / Modify as well.
