Create, edit, and delete roles

When you invite a user to your Content Manager, you assign them a role. A role specifies what features are available to the user and what restrictions should apply.

The Content Manager administrator role has access to all Content Manager features. To give users more limited access, you can create custom roles.

Create a role

  1. Sign in to Studio Content Manager.
  2. From the left menu, select Settings
  3. Click Permissions. This page shows a list of users who have Content Manager access and what role is assigned to them.
  4. Click MANAGE ROLES.
  5. Click the dropdown and select Create new.
  6. Under Name of role, enter a name for the role.
    • Use a name that will allow you to easily identify the role in the future.
    • Maximum length of the role name is 100 characters.
  7. Select the checkboxes next to the features and restrictions you want to assign to this role.
    • Hover over question marks  to learn more about each permission.
  8. Click DONE.
  9. Back on the Permissions page, click SAVE to save the new role.

The role can now be assigned to Content Manager users.

Edit an existing role

  1. Sign in to Studio Content Manager.
  2. From the left menu, select Settings
  3. Click Permissions.
  4. Select MANAGE ROLES and find a role you want to edit.
  5. Edit the role’s name or change the features and restrictions assigned to the role.
  6. Click DONE.
  7. Back on the Permissions page, click SAVE to save the changes.

The changes you made to the role will now affect all users with that role.

Delete a role

If you have a role that’s not assigned to any users, you can delete it:

  1. Sign in to Studio Content Manager.
  2. From the left menu, select Settings.
  3. Click Permissions.
  4. Select MANAGE ROLES and find a role you want to delete.
  5. Click DELETE ROLE.
  6. Back on the Permissions page, click SAVE to save the changes.

A message will appear at the bottom of the page confirming that the role was successfully deleted.
