  • Read
  • Write (optional)
  • FTP (optional) - Client will be able to access sever also without this policy checked, but some resources like images/mibs/etc wont load in this case)
  • Test (optional) - User will be able to run ping, traceroute, bandwith-test and see info in the device popup window.

More details on Users and Group policies in RouterOS can be found in this wiki article.
