I have a role "Editor" which is having certain permissions and don't have read access to Sitecore/Social item.

Now i need to create a new role "Approver" which is having same access as Editor but with additional Read and Write access to Sitecore/Social Item.

I tried by making Approver as member of Editor and then gave additional access to Approver. But this is not working.

Deny access right cannot be overwritten by any allow rule.

What you need to do is to:

  • remove that Deny read access for Editor role
  • make your Approver role a member of Editor role
  • disable inheritance of access rights for that item for your Editor role
  • and for your Approver role you need to assign Read and Write back
