After 1902 release this permission is no longer required to access Objects which are marked as 'Secured='Yes' on Configure Object Definitions however it is required for non secured MDF objects as the twx scenarios below.

  • If this permission is not granted, on manage data user will be able to see only objects which are marked as Secured='Yes' and user has access.
  • If this permission is granted, user will get access to all objects which are marked as 'Secured='No' and the secured objects on which user has access. 

For foundation objects, you have separate permission "MDF Foundation Objects" where you can control which Foundation Objects you have veiw/create/insert/correct or delete access.
