  • Asset Name. The asset as known internally.
  • Site Login. Allows users in the group to login to the Frontend site.
  • Administrator Login. Allows users in the group to login to the Backend Administrator site.
  • Offline Access. Allows users in the group to access the Frontend site when site is offline.
  • Super User. Allows users in the group to perform any action over the whole site regardless of any other perrmission settings.
  • Configure Options Only. Allows users in the group to edit the options (except permissions) of any extension.
