Collection Permissions
The granularity of ThingWorx security allows you to set any Collection with unique permissions. Organizations and organization units can be assigned read, write, subscribe, etc. permissions within Visibility rights. Users and User Groups can be assigned read, write, subscribe, etc. permissions within the Run Time and Design Time rights.
