Assign Role to a User

Note: Only the stack owner, admins, and users assigned developer roles, who has invited a specific user, can assign a particular role to that user. Any role you assign to a stack user will be reflected across all the branches of the stack. That user role will be able to access data of only the allowed branch(es) or branches associated with the allowed alias(es). Refer to our Global Modules document for more information.

To update a role assigned to an existing user, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack, navigate to the “Settings” icon on the left navigation panel, and select Users & Roles. This opens the Users page where you can see a list of existing users in the stack.
  2. Click on the user to whom you want to assign a specific role.
  3. In the Update User window, select the role(s) from the Roles dropdown menu.
  4. Click on Update.

Note: The stack owner can assign roles to all users of the stack.

Now, the user, whose role is changed, will have updated rights over the stacks and to the content within.

Additional Resource: You can assign a role to users when you add them. Follow the steps mentioned in the Add a New User article.
