Updating Folder Security for a News Publication

    Click the Content Management link.

  2. Click the Browse Publications link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Properties link.

    Step 4
  5. Use the Folder Security page to manage the folder members and their privileges. This page lists the members and privilege sets for the current folder. Actual privileges are assigned on the Set Members Privileges page.


    A new section automatically inherits the members and privileges of its parent news publication. However, privileges added later are not automatically transferred down the folder hierarchy and must be updated on a folder-by-folder basis. To assist with this process, an Inherit Members button appears when you view folder security for any subfolder, enabling you to quickly duplicate the same members as assigned to the parent folder.


    Note. A top administrator is automatically granted all privileges for all content and folders of the feature without being an explicitly assigned or listed member a folder.


    In this example, as a top administrator for news publications, you will add new members to this news publication.
