Tempest users can be assigned one of four roles:
- Site Admin
When a new user requests access to a site, their role is set to "Pending" changing their role one of the four roles above grants them access to the site with the permissions associated with that role.
*The contributor role is not configured for sites by default, but it can be set up if it is necessary. For more on the contributor role see this guide.
The following table shows the available permissions in Tempest and which roles posses those permissions by default:
|Edit User's Own Content||✓||✓||✓||✓|
|Publish User's Own Content||✓||✓||✓|
|Create/Edit Own User Profile||✓||✓||✓||✓|
|Assign Content to All Sections||✓||✓||✓|
|Create & Publish Rich Terms||✓||✓||✓|
|View All Unpublished Content||✓||✓||✓|
|Post to Social Accounts||✓||✓|
|Edit User Roles||✓||✓|
|Edit Site Programming||✓||✓|
|Edit All Author Profiles||✓||✓|
|Delete Rich Terms||✓||✓|
|Edit All Content||✓||✓|
Note that it is possible to modify these roles on a per-site basis but by default this is how all sites are configured and modifications are rarely made. If you're not sure about the permissions on your site specifically and need to verify the configuration, please contact Maven Publisher Support.
In addition to the Permissions listed above, the Site Admin(s) are also the only users that are authorized to request changes to the site's configuration (page templates, meta data, styling, etc) through Publisher Support. If you need to request any changes like these, please have a Site Admin contact Publisher Support or request that your current Site Admin or another Editor change your role to Site Admin if that is appropriate.
