You want a User to have manager editing access, but not have all the Permissions of an Administrator user. This tutorial, partially written by BobRay, will help you through that.
- In Access Controls ->Roles, create a new role (lets call it "Editor") with an authority of 10.
- In Settings -> Access Control Lists -> Access Policies, duplicate the administrator policy and rename it to whatever you want, for our example we'll use "AdminLite".
- Edit the AdminLite Policy to use whatever Permissions you want the User to have.
- In Settings -> Access Control Lists -> User Groups, right click on the "Administrator" group and select "Update User Group."
- On the Permissions -> Context Access tab, add two new entries to the grid:
- Context: 'mgr' Minimum Role: 'Editor', Access Policy 'AdminLite'
- Context: 'web' Minimum Role: 'Editor', Access Policy 'Load, List and View'
- In Manage -> Users, create the new user, or edit existing, and via the Access Permissions tab, assign them to the Administrator group with a role of Editor.
- Click on Security -> Flush Sessions and re-login.
