I have a Sitecore application, and some of my content authors want to work on some "secret pages" that should not be available to anyone else, including other content authors. Only a few of the content authors should have access to these "secret pages" as well as page.
What I've done so far...
Let's say the item is
and the website url is:
All content Editors are part of the role sitecore\MySite Content Editors.
Since some of them need special privileges, I created a special role. Before doing so, I went to the Access Viewer and marked the
Requires Login. Then I made sure that I removed the read, write, rename, create, delete, administer properties to the following roles
- Extranet/Anoymous and
- sitecore/MySite Content Editors
Now, when I log in as a content author, I am neither able to see the item in Sitecore nor am I able to see the page on the website - I am instead redirected to the Sitecore login page. This is all the expected behavior.
The next part is to make a role that grants the authors who will be editing the "secret pages" the necessary permissions to access and edit those pages.
I first created a role called sitecore\Special rights. I then went into the Security Editor and provided all rights for read, write, rename, create, delete, administer for the
mylocked-item for this role.
For the last step, I went to the users who will be editing the "secret pages" and gave them the sitecore\Special rights role. The problem is that I am still not able to provide them with access.
The Content Authors who will be editing the "secret pages" are members of 2 groups:
- sitecore\Special rights
- sitecore\My Site Content Editor
Whereas everyone else is part of just one the group sitecore\My Site Content Editor.
What am I missing?
