Access Manager has two types of groups:

Public group

    • Is a KB Group that represents site visitors and determines what KB content (if any) the public has access to.
    • There is always one Public “group” per Knowledge Base.
    • The administrator and KB manager selects which categories and articles will become public.
    • Every site visitor that (whether logged in or not) has access to all Public articles and categories.

Restricted groups

    • Are KB Groups created and configured by administrators and KB Managers. Restricted groups contain only WordPress registered users with access to selected or all KB content.
    • Each restricted group has its own name, users and access to some or all KB content.
    • Each restricted group has one or more KB Subscribers, KB Contributors, KB Authors, and KB Editors.

KB Groups Groups Tabs

Within a KB Group, each user has one of the following KB Roles. The KB Manager role is not specific to any KB Group.

  • KB Subscriber
    • This is the lowest role with the fewest privileges.
    • Users can read content his/her group has access to but cannot change any KB content.
  • KB Author
    • This is similar to the WordPress Author role.
    • The user can create and edit their articles but not create or edit categories or edit others’ articles.
  • KB Editor
    • This role is similar to the WordPress Editor role.
    • The user can create, edit, and delete any article that has at least one category that the user group owns.
    • The user can create, edit, and delete any category that his or her group owns.
  • KB Manager
    • The user in this role is considered to be an “administrator” for a given knowledge base.
    • For multiple Knowledge Bases, the manager controls all of them.
    • Unlike WordPress administrator, the KB Manager cannot access KB licenses.

If you also purchase Custom Roles add-on (optional) you will be able to map WordPress custom roles to KB Groups and roles.
