Issue with site roles.

We don't want the users of one site to have any abilities to view or edit other sites, so we have not assigned any global roles to default users. We have assigned Site Contributor; we didn't assign Site Administrator because we don't want a user to be able to redefine the automatically-created site-specific Destination. It appears that Site Contributors don't have any default objects in the "New" dropdown, so it's not clear how they create new pages, for example. Would a Site Contributor have access to an Asset Factory? It seems like there isn't much a Site Contributor can do, but I don't know whether to restrict the privs of a Site Administrator, increase the privs of a Site Contributor, or maybe I'm missing the point altogether.

    Clarification: we haven't assigned any Global roles other than Contributor.

    Hi Curtis,

    It appears that Site Contributors don't have any default objects in the "New" dropdown, so it's not clear how they create new pages, for example.

    This is controlled by the Groups field in your Asset Factories. Try this:

    • Click Administration -> Asset Factories
    • Click Edit on an Asset Factory that you want the Site Contributor to be able to create
    • Check the Groups field. Does the Group that these Site Contributors belong to have access to the Asset Factory? If so, the Group name will be displayed in the box on the right-hand side of the screen.

    Also, if the Asset Factories for your Site are located within containers, you'll need to edit those containers and make sure that the Applicable Groups field is set correctly as well.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Thanks
