Allowing a Module to Be Used


The module is one of the basic building blocks that extend DNN to enable users to view, create, and edit content. All DNN administrative features are implemented as modules.

In this article, you will learn how to configure modules to be enabled for use by specific users/roles. 



  • DNN Platform
  • Evoq Content
  • Evoq Engage




An administrator can grant Deploy Module permissions to a role, such as the Content Manager, to allow users in that role to add the module to a page. 



  1. Go to Persona Bar > Settings > Extensions.


  2. Open the module for editing.


    1. Go to the Installed Extensions tab.

    2. In the Showing dropdown, choose Modules.

    3. Click the Edit (pencil) icon for the module you want to configure.

  3. Go to the Site Settings tab.

  4. Grant a role/user permissions to deploy modules.

    • If the role/user you want is already in the table, check the Can Deploy box for that role/user.

    • If the role/user you want is not yet in the table, search for the role/user and click + Add

      The newly added role/user is automatically assigned Deploy Module permissions.

      Search for the role/user and "+ Add".
  5. Click Save & Close if you are done with the setup, or Save if you want to stay on the page after applying the changes.
