Introduced in branch: 

In Drupal 7 (before the release of Drupal 7.50) the following permissions allowed you to immediately configure the fields and display of the respective entities:

  • Administer content types (nodes and comment in case comments is enabled)
  • Administer users
  • Administer taxonomy

(In Drupal 7.50 and later, the "Administer fields" permission is also required.)

In Drupal 8, each fieldable entity automatically gets a separate permission to manage the fields and/or display:

  • Entity type x: Administer fields
  • Entity type x: Administer display

The various "Administer fields" permissions are also labeled as secure permissions and should only be granted to trusted site administrators.
