Role Administration

In this article:


ImCMS 6 provides flexible access control. A role is used to classify users and grant them certain permissions.

  • Get password by email - gives access to recover password by sending confirmation code to email (Login page -> Forgot password button).

  • Access to admin pages - gives access to the Site Specific tab and the Admin page, but with limitations.
    • No access to Ip Access, Version Control, Files, Profiles, System Properties, Import Documents, Documentation tabs.

    • Users tab - a user with this permission cannot edit superadmins and doesn’t see them when searching. Also, a such user cannot give the Superadmin role when creating/editing.

    • Delete Documents tab - a user with this permission has not access to the Waste Basket.

  • Access to document editor - gives access to the Document Manager. But only the user with the necessary document permission (EDIT or Edit doc info, see below) can open the Page Info of a specific document.

  • Publish own created documents - the user can publish own documents.

  • Publish all documents (only with EDIT-permission) - the user can publish any document if he has EDIT permission for the document.
