Permissions to change content type

What permissions do I need to set on a site role to allow a user to change content types in a particular site? I just want them to be able to do this, nothing else, so preferably setting this to a group to allow this for that group.

    Hi Alvin,

    Because Content Types are administrative assets, there are a few abilities you will need to enable:

    • Access the Administration Area - required to gain access to administrative assets in general
    • Access Content Types - required to gain access to Content Types

    On top of that, you will also need to ensure the users and/or groups have at least READ access to the Content Types (and their containers) so they can see them within the content type chooser.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
