Use the Permission Groups tab on the Receive connector properties to select the permission groups that are associated with the Receive connector. A permission group is a predefined set of permissions that is granted to well-known security principals and assigned to a Receive connector. Security principals include users, computers, and security groups. A security principal is identified by a security identifier (SID). The Permission Groups property defines the groups or roles that can submit messages to the Receive connector and the permissions that are assigned to those groups.
The following table lists the available permission groups and identifies the security principals and the permissions that are granted when that permission group is configured for a Receive connector.
