Prevent Move/Rename of SPECIFIC folders or pages only

Hello Cascade Team,

I have a handful of folders and pages that are consistently named across 80 sites and serve as external urls for other systems. They cannot be moved or renamed without breaking external dependencies. Users have the ability to create pages/folders along side and within these non-move/rename folders/pages. They can also edit content in these non-move/rename assets.

• Users must be able to edit content in all pages/folders.

I am unable to assign a group/role with move/rename rights to one asset and another group/role without move/rename rights to another asset. The effective ability for the user is that they can either move/rename or not on all assets. How do I prevent Move/Rename of SPECIFIC folders or pages only.

I've also looked at the following but was unable to find an answer:

    Hi Andre,

    Off-hand, here's what I think you would need to do:

    • Create a Role that mimics the existing Role, but has Move/Rename disabled
    • Create two groups and assign your users to those groups to make things more flexible
    • Edit the Site and assign your groups to both Roles
    • For pages and folders that need move/rename restricted, add edit access to the group that is assigned to the Role that cannot move/rename and no access for the group assigned to the Role that can move/rename

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Hello Ryan,

    Thanks for the quick answer - you guys rule!

    I was unsuccessful in my attempts - move/rename remains on each page (asset) even though they have different groups assigned access/visibility with roles having different move/rename abilities.

    I went further to remove the move/rename able group from everything - users, assets, no access to folders/pages - and made the test user only a non-move/rename able. It worked, but as soon as they are a member of the move/rename able group, regardless of what asset they are editing, the move/rename enabled ability clobbers all non versions

    Is there a problem if these sites are in Global?

    Hm, thinking this through I'm not sure if my suggestion would work, because the user's affective abilities would be an aggregate of the two Roles (for Sites and Global). Let me try it locally and get back to you.

    Hi Andre,

    After some testing, it definitely looks as though those abilities are aggregated, so the Role with Move/Rename enabled is adding the ability.

    The only way I could get the tab to be removed is if you make the asset read only, which won't really work for you unless the content on those pages is coming from somewhere else like a Block.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Not a problem at all, Andre, my apologies for not being able to provide you with a simple solution.

    I do think you might have a decent workaround if you can abstract the content to Blocks or other pages. With that setup, you could get away with simply making the pages READ only for those users.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
