Communities access types

Access types are used to control access to a forum or a content type.

You can define the access types for a forum and a content type in a permission. There are four access types available by default.
Table 1. Access types
Access type Description
Forum Admin Applies to forums.
Forum Moderator Applies to forums.
Content Read Applies to all content types.
Content Write Applies to all content types. Content Read access is automatically included in Content Write.
Note: It is not recommended that you create your own access types. Advanced knowledge of Communities architecture and scripting code to support and interpret the new access type is required.
