Configuring wireframing security

Only editors and other users with access to the Pages application in the administration interface can view and manage wireframes. The system does not display wireframes or wireframing components on the live website.


To configure wireframing permissions for specific roles, open the Permissions application.

Permissions for



Module -> Design


Allows users to edit the content of wireframes on the Wireframe tab and create new wireframe pages. Users without this permission can view existing wireframes, but are not allowed to make any modifications.

Design web site

Allows users to edit pages on the Design tab of the Pages application. Users only need this permission for managing wireframe zones inside standard page content.

Module -> Content


Users need the permissions for the Content module to access the content tree in the Pages application, and read or create pages in general (including wireframes).

Page type -> Wireframe


You can assign the basic content permissions specifically for the Wireframe page type (instead of the entire Content module).

UI personalization

By configuring UI personalization for particular roles, you can customize the visibility of individual elements in the wireframing interface.

  1. Open the UI personalization application.
  2. Select the appropriate Site and Role.
  3. Expand the CMS/Administration/Content management/Pages/Edit node in the user interface tree.
  4. Configure the checkboxes as required:
  • Design
    • Edit layout, Edit template, Save as new template - sets the visibility of the management actions offered in the page template menu.
    • Web part properties -> General - users must have this UI element allowed to access the property configuration dialog of wireframe components.
    • Add web parts - menu option for adding new components. Users can insert components from the toolbar even without this element.
    • Remove web parts - menu option for deleting individual components from wireframes.
  • Wireframe
  • Form
  • Properties -> Wireframe
  • New -> Page template selection -> Use existing page template - required to create new wireframe pages.

Members of the selected role can now see only the specified UI elements.
