Update a Role

Only the stack owner, or the users assigned admin and developer roles, who created the role, can update that particular role.

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

  1. Go to the stack, navigate to the “Settings” gear icon, select Roles, and click the role you want to update.
  2. Edit the details such as Name and Description of the role, if required.
  3. Under the PERMISSIONS section, you can update the permissions assigned to the role by making changes to the “Entry-/Field-level permissions” and/or to the “Asset-level permissions.” Also, you can make changes to the Publishing Environments, or the Languages sections.
  4. Click on Save to save the changes.

Note: The stack owner can update any role in the stack irrespective of the role being created by any other user.
