What are page permissions?
Page permissions are access privileges granted to specified users and groups on a page. Page permissions that can be granted are the same as the roles that can be granted to a contributing (pro) member in the control panel.
Although individual users can be granted permissions on pages, we recommend you grant permissions to groups only (even if the group contains only one user). If a user's access permissions ever should change in the future, changes can be managed as a global, one-time update in the control panel rather than having to hunt down and manually update each page the user was granted permissions on.
- A semi-public, semi-private or private page or section
- Create a group that needs to access the page or section
- Assign the appropriate role to the group
- Add the appropriate users to the group
You can also grant access to an individual user on a page, but we advise against this method. If an individual users (instead of groups) are granted permissions on a pages, then you have to individual pages to manually change permissions instead of adding or removing users to user groups.
When to grant page permissions
If you have semi-private, semi-public, or private pages or sections and want user groups to contribute to your content (draft, edit, manage) on those pages and sections, you MUST assign page permissions. (Global roles assigned in the control panel only apply to Public pages.)
Restrict access to your page or groups of pages
To grant access for users to a specific page or section:
- Navigate to the page or top page of the section you want to restrict access to.
- From the MindTouch toolbar, select Options > Restrict access.
- Under Page-Level Permissions, enter a User or Group into the field and click Add to list.
- If needed, click Apply changes to all subpages and choose the appropriate option.
- Click Save settings.
New subpages automatically inherit the settings of parent pages.
