Custom roles and permissions

Note: Custom roles are only available on our Enterprise plans.

A custom role is a space role which allows a space admin to allocate a set of custom permissions in the space to a group of users or teams. Admins can customize permissions with:

  • Content* - read, edit, create, delete, archive/unarchive, publish/unpublish and restricting actions

  • Media* - read, edit, create, delete, archive/unarchive, publish/unpublish and restricting actions

  • Content models - modify

  • API keys - access, create, edit

  • Environment settings - manage

  • Space settings - manage

*Can be either enabled or restricted to enable or prevent a user to perform the action

An admin is able to create, update and delete any role within a space. An admin can manage their roles from the Roles & permissions tab under Space settings.
