Overview

How does security work in Cloud CMS?

Cloud CMS provides two ways to describe access rights to things:

  • Object-level / role-based authorities
  • Team / role-based authorities

With object-level / role-based authorities, you assign a principal (either a user or a group) a role against something.  For example, you might give Joe the CONSUMER role against a content node.  When Joe then interacts with the content node in the future, he will do so with the CONSUMER role which will allow him to "read" the

Create a Role

Cloud CMS lets you create custom roles for your organization.  A role provides a mechanism for setting up security and access rights to your content.  Roles also play an important part in customizing the user interface.

Cloud CMS comes with several roles out of the box.  You can also create your own at any time.

To create and modify roles, you must be logged in as a manager or an administrator of your platform.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Log into Cloud CMS

Role-based security access

You can configure a Cloud CMS project to provide precise, role-based access to content types and content instances.  Let's take a look at example of how this is done!

Suppose that you have three users - JimDwight and Michael - and two content types (my:article and my:news).  We would like things to work like this:

  1. Michael is the boss.  He is allowed to view, create, edit and delete conte
