Introduced : BIG-IP_v9.4.0
Sets the permissions of the specified users. The permission basically indicates what role a user has on a given partition. A user could have one role on a partition, and a different role on another partition, hence the permission list is a sequence of sequence.
As of BIG-IP v11.1, the user permission subsystem will only allow a user access to one partition. If multiple UserPermissions are passed in with the permissions parameter, the last one in the array will be the one that is assigned. Request for Enhancement (RFE) #325269 is in place to correct the ability to assign a user permissions to multiple partitions.
