Refer to our role permissions breakdown article for a detailed list of capabilities afforded to each default role as well as those that can be assigned to custom roles.

Sensitive Information Privileges (SIP)

Lever's Sensitive Information Privileges (SIP) allows for flexible and granular permission-gating of your most sensitive hiring data. These Privileges can be flexibly scoped on a per-user basis. They allow a user to view specified types of Sensitive Information on candidate profiles that are associated with jobs within specified departments, team, locations or individual job postings.

You can also grant specific users one-off access to certain secret objects during the process of making those objects secret. Admins, Team Members, and Limited Team Members can also see hired candidate profiles if they are the owner or hiring manager of the posting the candidate was hired for.
