Administrators can view the group permissions set on individual pages, components, folders, and assets within Users/Groups.

To set group permissions on pages, components, folders and assets, see the Authorization section for details.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Users/Groups > Groups.
  2. Select a group from the Group Name list.
  3. Click the Security Root Pages tab. A table displays the object permissions associated with the group.
