Creating a Sitecore alias role in Sitecore 6

Modified: 2012/03/21 11:02 by m.wensveen - Categorized as: Sitecore
It can be a bit confusing to allow a webeditor to use the "alias" functionality. This is a way to create a custom Aliases role! (as explained by Sitecore Support)

1. Please create a new role(or use an existent one), for example sitecore\Sitecore Client Aliases. Use this role to add the following permissions.
2. Switch to the Core database and allow Read permission for the /sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Chunks/Page Urls item and its descendants.

3. Switch to the Master database and unprotect the /sitecore/system/Aliases item by using the Unprotect Item checkbox in the Configuration tab.
4. Allow Read, Write, Create permissions for the /sitecore/system/Aliases item and Read, Write, Create, Delete permissions for its descendants.

5. Protect the /sitecore/system/Aliases item back.
6. Add user to the sitecore\Sitecore Client Aliases role.
