Roles and Rights

Only the Editor-in-chief is allowed to publish content online? No problem. It makes sense to have a responsible person check content before it goes online. Papaya CMS differentiates between creating articles and publishing them – the first anyone can do, the second only people with authorization. This helps you guarantee the quality of content published on your website.

User Groups

Access rights and privileges can be given to specific users or defined for user groups. Groups can be created for specific areas of responsibility or rolls. For example, Editors can create pages and add content, but only Editors-in-chief can publish the content online.

You can define access rights in 3 ways:

  • You can activate and deactivate global rights.
  • A Group can be given individual rights.
  • You can change the rights for one individual.

If a user doesn’t have the rights to use a specific module or function such as the publishing of pages, then the menu options and buttons for these functions are not displayed.  This increase the usability of the user interface while allowing you to easily define access rights.

Membership in Multiple User Groups

Backend users are always members in a primary user group. If a specific user needs additional rights, they can be added to another user group. A member of the group “Editors” can also be a member of the group “Newsletter”, if the editor is also allowed to send newsletters. Through the membership in an additional group, it is possible to give specific users additional rights with only a few clicks without a complete reconfiguration of the access rights.
