When a user creates a new database, that user is assigned only one permission set automatically: the SUPER permission set. As you create and define permission sets in a new database and companies, remember to always assign the BASIC permission set, which grants users access to required system tables and other fundamental tables, to all users.

The BASIC permission set and permissions, as well as other permission sets, are provided in an XML file, examples of which are included with the CRONUS International Ltd. demonstration database. If you want to extend them with new permission sets or permissions, you can modify them.
