As the administrator, you can view all defined roles, modify the name and description of those roles, and change the permission granted to those roles. You can view - but not modify - the administrators role, which includes access to all functionality.
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 Dashboard > System Administration > Membership Administration > Members and Roles > Manage Site Roles.
- To view the permissions for a particular role, select that role from the Site Role drop-down list. The permissions assigned to the role are listed in Granted Permissions, and all other available permissions are listed in Available Permissions.
- To move permissions from Available Permissions to Granted Permissions or vice versa, select one or more permissions in one list and click the single right or left arrow to move it to or from granted permissions. To move all permissions from one list to another, click on either the double left arrows (to move from Granted Permissions to Available Permissions) or double right arrows (to move from Available Permissions to Granted Permissions).
- Click Save to commit the changes.
