Viewing Permissions in the System

Listing all permissions in the system is reserved for System Administrators and Blog Administrators (for users assigned permissions on an individual blog).

To list all permissions (i.e. the combination of a user assigned a given role on a given blog) in the system:

  1. Switch to the System Overview area of Movable Type by clicking on the blog selection menu and choosing “System Overview.”

System-Wide Permissions screen displays a listing of each individual permission that has been granted to users on blogs. From this screen you can change to other filtered views of the permissions assigned to individual users, all of the permissions for a particular role, or the users that have permissions on individual blogs.
