Users, roles, and domains

Abstract

Introduction to Sitecore access security control via users, roles and domains.

In Sitecore, access security is controlled on three levels:

  • user - an individual user

  • role - a collection of users. Roles enable you to assign access rights to a group of users instead of to an individual user

  • domain - a collection of security accounts

With these three levels of security you can control all user access to Sitecore functionality and website content.
