Page components This functionality requires elevated permissions

A page in Sitecore Content Hub contains zones and each zone contains page components. It is the page components that contain the actual data and determine how content is displayed.

There are three categories of page components:

CategoryDescription
UnrestrictedThese components are created by superusers or through the Content Hub interface.
RestrictedOnly administrators can create this type of page component; superusers, however, can configure them. These page components cannot be deleted.
System-ownedOnly administrators can configure this type of page component, which contains the default component settings. These components do not have the option to switch from system settings to custom settings and are marked with the padlock icon Lock icon.

In the following example:

  1. The component called Operations uses custom settings and can be configured by a superuser.
  2. The component called DerivativeIndicators uses system settings but can be configured by a superuser.
  3. The component called Content warning is system owned and locked.
