Roles and user Questions please

  • Roles and user Questions please
  • I have some staff members who I want to allow to upload images to libraries.    I want to let them upload the images, but I do not want them to have access to any pages.

    Is there a "Role" I can assign them?   I've been experimenting, and some of the roles like "Designers" or "Authors" gives them access to PAGES.    I only want to allow then access to CONTENT.

  • Hello Tom,

    This can be achieved by creating a custom Role and set its permissions to only allow "Modify library and manage images" under Image section of the Libraries section and then assign the users to this role who will only upload the images.

    Steps to follow:

    Login as a Administrator.

    Administrations->Roles->Create new role->Write a custom name for the role inside the role text box->Create

    Click on Permissions on the right side of the newly created Role from the Roles list->Scroll to the Image under Libraries section->Click Change button->Select Allow box of the "Modify library and manage images"->Click Done. There will be a green tick mark right side of the "Modify library and manage images".

    Go back to all items / Roles page, to set the users to this role.
    Click on "Assign or Unassign Users" on the right side of the newly created role from the Roles list -> Select the users/staff members who will only modify/upload images to the libraries->Save changes

    Please read our documentation on Roles at http://docs.sitefinity.com/overview-roles and it's sub sections for more details.
