Example

To allow members of a selected role to edit site-specific manufacturers, you need to assign this role permissions in one of the following combinations:

  • Read data + Modify data
  • Read data + Modify manufacturers
  • Read manufacturers + Modify data
  • Read manufacturers + Modify manufacturers

Similarly, to allow the role members to edit global customers, you need to assign permissions in one of the following combinations:

  • Read data + Modify global data
  • Read customers + Modify global data

You can perform this configuration in the E-commerce Solution permissions matrix in the Permissions application.

Product permissions

Permissions described on this page affect E-commerce Solution objects only. If you need to restrict access to modifications of products, you need to distinguish between:

Products as stand-alone SKUs

The corresponding above-described permissions apply fully, i.e. you don't need any other permissions.

Products as SKUs + pages

You need to have:

  • corresponding E-commerce permissions,
  • page-related permissions.
