One of the most powerful features in the DotNetNuke platform is the “Roles” function. Read on for an overview of DotNetNuke security rules and some tips for using them for your own DotNetNuke website.

What are DotNetNuke Security Roles?

DotNetNuke’s security roles allow you to group users into specified categories, each of which has access and restrictions at both the page and module level. You also can automatically assign roles, assign public roles, associate a time frame with each member, and more. Users can belong to multiple roles as you specify, and you always have the ability to create customized roles. This allows access to your website to become a well-oiled machine while maintaining crucial security.

The process of creating a user on a DotNetNuke website is fairly simple, but it must be done by an administrator. Upon login to the Admin Account, click on the “User Accounts” menu. This will bring up a “User Details” page containing an alphabetical list of users. To create a user, click “Add New User” and enter information as you are prompted. Make sure to check the boxes marked “Authorize” and “Send Notification Mail.” To delete or edit a user, simply use the corresponding buttons. Once your users have been created, you can assign them roles just as easily.
