Administrator privileges for single site

Alison Pallister asked on November 10, 2015 05:17

We are new to Kentico and are having problems with setting up lower levels of access for contract developers. All our staff have been assigned Global Administrator privilege, but now we want to give access to a single site to a contract developer. We selected the Privilege level for the user for the single site, but no matter what we do, we can't seem to give the user any access to the web parts, or anything except for email templates under the Development group of applications. We have tried adding all of the built in roles and nothing works. Can someone please offer some guidance, thanks :)

To access the mentioned applications, the user must be granted with global administrator privilege level. These applications "allow" the acces to code and it can be very dangerous - the user with access to here can damage the site. So, therefore these applications are available only to a user with highest possible permission - so it should be experienced and trained person.

However, there is a discussion about this since more customers have the same need as you do. I already contacted our product manager and told him that we have another request to split the development and let the applications to be accessible by other users than global admins.

As Juraj mentioned, there isn't anyway to do this as of right now. If you are concerned with your contractor and accessing other sites in your Kentico instance, you might want to re-think who you're using as a contractor. Let me know if you need any additional help!

You can also create a custom UI element (basically cloning the web parts application) with your custom permissions. This would give you total control of who is able to access the given module. This however requires some custom development.
