Abstract

How to add Sitecore users to a new role or make the new role a member of another role.

When you have created a new role, you can add users to the new role, or you can make the new role a member of another role. In Sitecore, you can make any security account (users or roles) a member of a role. To make a security account a member of a role:

  1. In the Role Manager, click the role that you want to add a security account to and then click Members.
