In Sitefinity, roles are groups of users that are defined by what they can and cannot do on the site. For instance, users that are assigned the premade role of “Administrator” are granted full global, content module, and sitemap permissions.
Users can be assigned no roles, a single role, or multiple roles.
Users are useful for a multitude of reasons. First, users can help you keep track of exactly who does what on the backend of your website. Second, you can assign roles to users to determine who is able to do what on your website.
To view the permissions associated with each role, click the “Administration” tab in the Sitefinity navigation bar. In the dropdown menu that appears, select “Roles”. Next, click the “Permissions” link for the role
that you wish to inspect. This process is visually described in the images below.
Sitefinity comes out of the box with a set of pre-created roles but also gives you the ability to create your own roles.
There are a variety of pre-created roles that are included with Sitefinity. The following list describes these pre-created roles.
For pre-created roles that allow it, you can edit the permissions associated with the role by clicking the Permissions button for your desired role from the list of roles.
You can also edit roles that you create by clicking the Permissions button for your created role.
In addition to using the pre-created roles included within Sitefinity, you can also create customized roles.
There are two ways of assigning roles to users, directly through a user's details or through the list of roles.
Permissions are rules that determine what users and roles can do. In terms of granularity, users have roles, and roles have permissions. Permissions are not only useful in terms of allowing or disallowing certain actions, but by assigning them to roles,
they help make these roles more clearly defined.
Navigate to “Administration” > “Permissions” to access the Permissions page. From here, you can manage permissions by Section (i.e. permissions for different content modules or global permissions), by user, or by role.
Permissions in Sitefinity are inheritable, meaning that if you assign a permission to a parent item, it will affect each of its child items. You can break the inheritance by then customizing the permissions of the child item.
The way that permissions work is by denying or allowing values for specific actions. Sitefinity works using implicit denial, which means that if neither “Allow” or “Deny” are set, the user will be denied the permission by default.
