How global group roles affect global user roles

Global roles can be applied to either a user or a group via the Control Panel.

If a user is a part of a group, MindTouch grants the higher of the two roles across the entire site.

User role Group role Resulting global role
Viewer Author (higher role) Author
Author (higher role) Viewer Author
Viewer Admin (higher role) Admin

Setting site-wide roles is only possible via the control panel. If a user is granted a role at a page level, that role applies to that page only. For more details on the various levels of site privacy, please see our documentation on understanding site privacy in MindTouch.
