Permission is a Page type used for storing an individual permission.

One or more Permission objects are attached to Role objects, which are then attached to User objects and Template objects, forming ProcessWire's role-based access control system. Outside of roles, Permission objects are managed with the $permissions API variable.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
