Setting access rights from edit view

Website access rights are generally managed from the administration view. However, you can allow editors to set access right for a single page or a block from the edit view. This can be useful when you need to publish an item to verify the final result, but you do not want it to be publicly visible. Setting access rights from the edit view only affects the selected item (page or block).

To set access rights, open the item in the All properties edit view. The Visible to option displays Everyone for content that is publicly available on the website, and Restricted if access limitations apply.

Click Manage to change the settings in the Access Rights dialog:

If access rights are inherited from the parent page, clear Inherit access rights from parent item, and click Add Users/Groups to define new access rights. Add access rights as desired and save the settings.

Removing, for instance, read access for Everyone as in the example above, hides the published page from being visible to the public, but it is fully visible and editable for the Site_Editors group (as well as Administrators).

Editors must belong to a group with Administer access rights to be able to define access rights from the edit view. This setting does not provide access to any other administration options in Episerver CMS.

Refer to Access rights for more information on how to work with access rights in Episerver CMS.
