Page Security

In some cases, permissions assigned for a subsite are either too general or too restrictive for a page or template. For these cases page administrators can customize CommonSpot permissions to suit the specific page or template requirements. Permissions assigned for a page or for a template supersede those assigned for a site.

Access this dialog in Author mode for the page, and select Security from the Manage menu to customize page permissions. You can also access this dialog by clicking the security icon for an item in page and template reports and search results.

The first section indicates if any custom permissions are defined for the page. These permissions override those created at the site level, unless they were enforced. Optionally click the Restore Default Security button to remove customizations and revert to standard permissions defined for the subsite.

Groups and users display with associated permissions. Click column heads to sort by Type, Name, or Permission. Permission type is indicated by the display:

To change permissions for an existing user or group, click the icon to display the Add Page Permissions dialog in edit mode.

To grant permissions for a new user or group, click Add Group or Add User to open the Page Security - Add User or Page Security - Add Group dialogs.
