Access control in ProcessWire

ProcessWire uses a role-based access control system (RBAC). Users are assigned to one or more roles, each role is assigned permissions, and roles are assigned to templates for access control of pages.

  • Roles

    Roles are a way of grouping multiple users and assigning permissions to that group. They are the connection of both users and templates to permissions.
  • Permissions

    Permissions represent a granular permission to access something or to perform some action. This page outlines permissions recognized by the core.
