Permissions for functions

This topic is intended for administrators and developers with administration access rights in Episerver.

Setting of access rights from Permissions for Functions

These functions, found in the admin view under Config > Security > Permissions for functions, require setting of access rights:

  • Detailed error messages for troubleshooting provides selected groups or users access to detailed error messages. In System Settings, it is possible to activate a function that provides visitors with a form to fill in whenever a technical error occurs on the website. By changing the access rights here, you can specify who should receive these forms.
  • Allow the user to act as a web service user allows a user to call one of the web services provided by Episerver. This function is only used for system integration purposes.
  • Allow users to move data/pages between page providers lets selected users or groups move pages between page providers. This is used for websites with a custom page provider integrated with another system. Since data is deleted in the source provider, you may want to limit access to this function.

Adding/Changing permissions to a function for a group or user

  1. In admin view, go to Config > Security > Permissions for functions and select Edit for the function you want to modify. Existing groups or users with access appear.
  2. Select Add Users/Groups if you want to give users or groups access to this function. The groups and persons in the system appear in the window that opens.
  3. Double-click the name to add the group or user.
  4. Select OK. The group or user appears in the list with its check box selected.
  5. Select Save.
