Roles and Permissions
Builder provides 5 built-in roles to grant the appropriate access to team members. Additionally, Enterprise plans can define custom roles for granular controls.
The roles in Builder are as follows:
Contributors cannot drag and drop to add, remove, or move blocks. They can only edit the options of blocks, such as the text and images, but not the layouts of them.
Contributor permissions are best for users you only want to modify basic page content like text or images. They cannot create or change layouts, add or remove blocks, or move anything around.
Editors can create and edit content - such as text, images, and other blocks - but can't edit designs or styling.
Editor permissions are great for users who need to create content using design systems. They can create and edit pages using pre-defined components–by developers–and templates and symbols–by designers. Editors can edit content by adding or changing text, uploading assets, or adding and rearranging page contents but have no access to styling or code.
Designers can create and edit content and designs.
Designers have access to full style controls but don't have access to code, such as JSON view. We recommend that your designers save content as templates and symbols for other team members to use. Note: some legacy accounts have a "Creator" role which is synonymous with this Designer role.
Developers can create and edit content, designs, code, and models.
Developers have access to design controls just like designers, and can use code within Builder's visual editor as well, to connect to custom data sources or add custom interactive behavior to your Builder content.
Admins can do everything, including manage users and payment.
Admins have access to all available options and controls. They can do anything in the editor as well as manage users and billing.
Enterprise plans can define custom roles for custom granular controls.
