Setting Publishing Target Security


Administrators can configure security settings on a group-by-group basis for a given publishing target. Removing security permissions from user groups prevents members from viewing or accessing the publishing target in Ingeniux CMS site areas (e.g., Site Tree, Page Builder).

If individual groups lack access to a publishing target, then those groups don't have access to publishing profiles associated with that publishing target.

To set publishing target security:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Publishing System > Publishing Targets.
  2. Select the appropriate publishing target from the Managing Publishing Targets list.
  3. Click the Security tab.
    User groups with access to the selected publishing target display.

    By default, all user groups have access to each publishing target. Keep in mind that if all groups have access to the publishing target, the CMS automatically grants the same access to groups created post saving the publishing target. If not all groups have access, then the publishing target requires administrators to add new groups manually.
