Code names of global roles


Code names are only checked for uniqueness within the context of individual sites, which means that it is possible for a global role to have the same code name as a site‑specific role.


If you need to specify a global role using its code name in your custom website code or via the API, you can add the period character (".") as a prefix. This ensures that only the global role will be selected and any site roles with the same code name will be ignored (for example .Content_admin).


More resources on Roles can be found in Developer's Guide -> Development -> Membership, permissions and security -> Security model overview.
