Configuring and Copying Page Permissions


Site admins can define permissions for pages in different ways and can also copy them to descendant pages to save time. This article shares the process for site admins to:

  • Configure page permissions for specific users.
  • Define page permissions by user roles in general.
  • Quickly copy permission settings to descendant pages.      





Follow these steps to set permissions of an existing page:

  1. Go to Persona Bar > Content > Pages.


  2. Click the gear icon for the page.

  3. Go to the Permissions tab.
  4. Assign permissions for roles, under Permissions by Role:
    • To filter the displayed roles, select the role group from the Filter By Group dropdown.
    • To add another role to the list, click +Add.
    • Check the appropriate checkboxes to enable each role to perform actions.
  5. Assign permissions for specific users, under Permissions by User:
    • To add a particular user to the list, enter part of their display name, select the correct user from the list, and click +Add.
    • Check the appropriate checkboxes to enable each user to perform actions.
  6. Optionally, apply the same permissions to the child pages of the page selected currently.
  7. Click Save.




To confirm that the permissions have been applied correctly:

  1. Access the page as a user in the role that you have added or removed from the page permissions.
  2. You should be restricted or allowed certain actions on the page depending on what was configured.
