Brightspot CMS User Guide

Assigning site-specific roles

If an administrator or editor requires different levels of permissions across different sites, you can assign site-specific roles.

To assign site-specific roles, the role must first be created, and it must be associated to all sites (configured in the role's Sites field). For details, see Creating a role.

To assign site-specific roles:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Users & Roles.
  2. From the Users list, click in the Search field, and search for an existing administrator or editor.
  3. Click the administrator or editor to whom you want to assign site-specific roles.
  4. From the Permissions list, select Site Specific Roles.
  5. Click add_circle_outline to add a new site-specific role to the editor or administrator.
  6. Under Sites, select the site to which the role applies.
  7. Under Roles, select a role to apply to the selected site.
  8. Repeat steps 5–7 to add additional site-specific roles.
  9. Click Save.
