How to Manage Security on Pages, Components, and Folders | Overview and links to details about security on pages, components, and folders.
The CMS has two levels of security that administrators can apply to any page, component, or folder in the Site Tree:
Administrators set security by default or on a "per group" basis. The "per group" option grants individual groups different access levels in the same node (i.e., content item). Child nodes inherit their parent node's security settings by default, unless administrators configure the child node's security separately.
Any group with administrator rights has complete, unrestricted access to all nodes in the Site Tree.
Tip: Administrators can set node-level security via Properties > Security in the Edit toolbar or the Site Tree context menu. See Page Security for details.
To set security for a content item:
The CMS selects the checkbox by default. If selected, the content item uses its parent's security settings. Repeat the steps above to access its parent item's security settings.
If cleared, the content item uses its own security settings rather than its parent settings.
For example, the parent item may grant groups full access while the child grants groups read-only access or vice-versa. You can configure the child's security settings per group to be less restrictive, more restrictive, or equal to its parent security.
Note: The Everyone user group overrides all other settings in Security.
|Read-Only||Grants groups with appropriate permissions to only view, copy, and publish the content item.|
|Full Access||Grants groups with appropriate permissions to perform all content item operations and edits.|
