Inheritance Restrictions

For components that can inherit security permissions (templates, Elements, and popup menus), CommonSpot gives you flexible control over specific privileges. Click Change in Template Inheritance Security or Element Inheritance Security to configure access to the current object and its children. Use this option to "lock down" attributes you don't want modified.

This dialog lists the number of pages affected by any restrictions you put in place. Click one of the (n pages affected) links to view pages.

Select an option to exclude access to design, style, or administration features:

Select one or more options to restrict assignment. For example, selecting the Design option above restricts users from making design changes. The design option is unavailable, as shown below, to anyone trying to Edit Inherited Page Permissions.

Click Save to keep your changes. For changes affecting derived pages, CommonSpot asks you to review affected pages by displaying the Inherited Restrictions Confirmation dialog.
