Table B-3 lists and describes the privilege levels that can be granted on both pages and tabs.

Table B-3 Page and Tab Privileges

Privilege Description

Manage

A user with the page privilege Manage can perform any operation on the page or tab. The Manage privilege includes all the other page or tab privileges. Such users can add regions to a page and create sub-pages under the page on which they have the privilege. Additionally, they can perform all of the actions listed for the Manage Content privilege, as well as control page or tab access and the page style or the style of the tab's regions (but see Notes).

Notes:

  • For a user with this privilege to change the page style or the style of the tab's regions, the page group option Allow Privileged Users To Manage Style must be selected at the page group level. Selecting this option enables the user to apply a different style when editing the page or the tab's regions. If this option is not selected at the page group level, only users with the page group privilege Manage All or Manage Styles can apply a different style to the page or the tab's regions.

  • There is a second page group option for controlling page styles called Allow Privileged Users To Personalize Page Style. When this option is selected, users with at least the page privilege Personalize (Style) can apply a different style when personalizing the page.

  • If a page is based on a template, users with the Manage privilege may not be able to control page or tab access and style. There are two template-level options, Enable Pages To Have Different Access and Enable Pages To Use Different Style, that control whether page designers can specify different access and style settings. These template-level options must be selected; otherwise, page or tab access and style settings cannot be changed on pages that use the template, even though users have the Manage privilege.

For more information, see Section 4.3.2, "Controlling Who Can Apply a Different Style to a Page" and Section 17.5.2, "Granting Privileges on a Page".

Manage Content

Users with the page or tab privilege Manage Content can add, edit, hide, show, share, and delete, any item, sub-item, portlet, or tab on the page or tab's defined regions.

Such users can also personalize pages according to the personalize page privileges and can view the page.

Manage Items With Approval

A user with the page or tab privilege Manage Items with Approval can add or edit items on the page or tab, but the changes are published only after the defined approval process is complete.

Notes:

  • This page privilege is available only when approvals are enabled on the page's page group. If approvals are enabled, but an approval process is not defined, users with this privilege can add, edit, or copy items on the page or tab without approval. In other words, when approvals are enabled but an approval process is not defined, the page privilege Manage Items With Approval becomes equivalent to the page privilege Manage Content with regard to items.

  • This privilege is not available for mobile pages.

  • Users with the page or global privilege Manage Items with Approval can also personalize the pages on which they have the privilege and can view the page.

For more information, see Section 5.4, "Setting Up Approvals".

Manage Style

A user with the page or tab privilege Manage Style can change the style of the page and regions on the page or regions on the tab.The Manage Style privilege includes all of the page personalization privileges and the View privilege on the pages on which it is granted.

Notes:

  • For a user with the Manage Style privilege to change the style of a page or a region on a tab, the page group option Allow Privileged Users To Personalize Page Style must be selected for the page's page group. This option is available on the Main tab of page group properties.

  • If a page is based on a template, users with the Manage Style privilege may not be able to control the style of the page. The template-level option, Enable Pages To Use Different Style must be selected on the template to enable users with the Manage Style privilege to change the style of a page that is based on the template.

  • This privilege is not available for mobile pages.

Personalize Portlets (Full)

A user with the page or tab privilege Personalize Portlets (Full) can alter his own view of the page by changing the style of the page, adding portlets to the page, and deleting, moving, hiding, or showing any portlet on the page.

Notes:

  • For a user with this privilege to change the style of a page or of a region on the tab, the page group option Allow Privileged Users To Personalize Page Style must be selected for the page or tab's page group. Such users can also view any page on which they have the privilege.

  • Changes made under Personalize privileges are visible only to the user who made them. For example, if a user with the Personalize Portlets (Full) privilege deletes a portlet from a page or tab, other users will still see that portlet. Similarly, if a user with the Personalize Portlets (Full) privilege adds a portlet to a page or a tab, only that user will see the portlet.

A user with the page or tab privilege Personalize Portlets (Add-Only) can alter their view of the page by changing the style of the page, adding portlets to the page, and deleting, hiding, or showing the portlets that they add. Such users can also view any page on which they have the privilege.

  • Changes made under the privilege Personalize Portlets (Hide-Show) are visible only to the user who made them. For example, if a user with this privilege hides a portlet on a page, that portlet is hidden only for that user; other users will still be able to see the portlet.
