How to configure Membership/Roles to add group of users for private section

Chris Haff asked on April 30, 2015 00:01

I have a use case where I have a site where a group of users (project team) should get their own private section on the site. While all in the group should have read permissions some have permission to create new items (editor) while others can only comment/vote (contributors).

This does not currently need to be self-serve (e.g. buy via ecommerce) we can take the transaction and set the group up manually. What's the best way to set this up?

Kentico documentation states the "DENY" permission takes priority over any other permission. What I typically do is restrict everyone, then create roles for the different sections/nodes users need to have access to. Create a role for editor and contributor, then on each of the sections, grant or deny access on the security tab of the page. Next start assigning users to the roles as needed and test it out.
