When you edit the existing role permissions of a Contribute
site in Dreamweaver, Do you need to create a new key and send this
to the users?
The user guide seems to imply this as the role permissions
are included in the key.
Do the users have to do anything special to update their
configuration or just double click the new key file and it will
overwrite the old permissions.
If the new permissions were downgrading the user's
permissions could they just simply ignore the new key file and
continue to use the old settings from the original key to avoid
being given new restrictions?
My experience is that you do not have to sent a new key when
you change the role-settings/permissions.
The role settings will be updated for your user when they
connect to the website, they are saved in the _mm folder on the
server and on the users computer.
I suppose you only have to sent a new key when you want them
to have another role (say Writer instead of Publisher).
Actually, you do not have to send a new key unless you need a
new key. I am using multiple roles (Writer, Publisher, plus a
couple of custom ones). I move users between roles when necessary
and never have to send them a new key.
In fact, since I am using CPS for the user management, I
don't send them keys at all. The user just has to enter the correct
connect:servername.com information into the address bar and CPS
does the rest.
