Approve Edit Access Request for an Entry

Note: It is important to familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of Workflows before starting to work with them. You can refer to these articles: Workflows, Workflow Stages, and Tasks.

When a stage access rule is set for an entry on a particular workflow stage, only users or roles with workflow stage transition rights over an entry have edit access rights. Other users have to request them to grant edit access rights to the entry over that stage of the workflow.

To approve an edit access request for an entry, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack, and open the entry.
  2. On the entry page, click on the “Information” icon on the right panel.

  3. In the Pending Access Requests dialog box, you can view the set of edit access requests sent by different users. Click on Allow to grant edit access to the entry or Reject to disallow edit access to the entry. 

    Note: Any one of the users with edit access rights over the entry in the current stage can go ahead and approve or reject the request.

The approvers can also navigate to the Tasks section to view the request for edit access and directly allow or reject access to the entry from that section.
