An administrator can view all defined roles, modify them, clone them, or create new ones and add or remove permissions from a role. (Note that the admin can view - but not modify - the administrators role.)
Note: We recommend that you do not change the default permissions and roles without carefully testing the impact of the change in a test environment and determine how the changes affect the perspective of all user roles.
To change permissions assigned to a role:
- Navigate to Control Panel > System Administration > Membership Administration > Members and Roles > Manage Site Roles.
- To view a role's permissions, select the role from the Site Role drop-down list. Its permissions will be displayed in Granted Permissions. Other (unassigned) permissions will be listed in Available Permissions.
- To add more permissions from Available Permissions to Granted Permissions (or remove granted permissions), select the desired permissions and use the arrow keys to move it to the desired list.
- Click Save to commit the changes.
