Page Permissions

lawrence whittemore asked on October 31, 2016 20:23

I need some help understanding an issue.

I have a user assigned to a role.

The user has their starting path set to their page on the site and the users privilege level is set to editor.

The role is assigned to their page in kentico with the ability full access.

Doing this the user has access to seemingly everything except to create new items even though I have create checked. Please note, I have browse tree selected and the user can browse and see the tree in the left hand menu, if I uncheck browse tree the user no longer has access to the pages section. (which acts as I would expect)

The only way I can get them the ability to create a document is to go to permissions and allow create globally for the role and not just at the page level.

Please let me know what I am missing. What does the create permission do page level if I need to turn it on globally. Why does it not work at the page level the same way browse tree and edit works???

What I was missing was setting the role permissions to create the specific document/page types needed. When you set create globally it seems to cover all page types by default. When you set create at the page level you need to set permissions for the page types as well.

Permissions are multi-faceted. In order to create a page you need

  1. Permission to the page (check)
  2. Permission to create a page in that location (check)
  3. Permission to use the tools that are needed to create a page in general (UI Personalization)

I believe #3 is where you may be having the problems, go to the Roles module, select your role, then click on "UI personalization" and check out the "CMS - Administration - Content Management - Pages - New" section and see what you have there!
