Content Security

Use Content Security to manage the subsite-level permissions for all pages in the selected subsite. The subsite-level security settings are the broadest security permissions. In other words, by default these permissions apply to all pages within the subsite unless explicitly overwritten at the template, page, or Element level.

NOTE: To better support workflow and element usability, contributors receive Design and Style rights for new sites by default. When creating new sites, administrators should review all site-level default settings to ensure that they meet site requirements.

Click the delete icon to remove subsite permissions for a selected group or individual, or select multiple individuals or groups and click Delete Selected from the More Actions dropdown.
