Contensis system groups

Created by r.bromley, last modified by r.saunders on 22 Mar 2021

Various system user groups come with your install of Contensis, ready for you to assign users and content permissions to.

The following system groups give global permission across all projects in a Contensis instance.

Note: Many of these system groups will be migrated in future releases of Contensis and will become part of roles.

AD Users

Users logging in using Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) are added to this group.

API Key Administrators

Users in this group can create, update, delete, enable and disable API keys.

CMS Editors
