This article lists MindTouch the roles and associated permissions you can choose to assign to your contributing, internal site users, or groups (i.e. your pro members). Whether you assign roles site-wide or on a page, how you assign roles depends on the structure of your organization, your internal workflows, and on how much access your pro members require.
Pro member roles
Roles are additive. Higher roles inherit all the abilities of lower roles while also gaining the abilities of their specific role.
|Pro member role||Reason for assignment|
|None||Rare edge case. Not allowed to see or access content, except where specified through page permissions.|
|Viewer||Allowed to see content (except for private content).|
|Draft contributor||Allowed to create and edit drafts of new and existing pages.|
|Author||Permitted to publish drafts.|
|Editor||Allowed to delete pages and restrict other users from accessing pages.|
|Admin||Assign sparingly. This user is omniscient. Allowed full control over content. Pages can never be hidden from this user.|
Pro member contributions
When you create a user in the control panel, associated access levels and abilities are applied globally. To allow or restrict users from performing tasks on a specific page, you must assign the appropriate roles on the page itself (does not apply to the Admin role).
