Change user roles


As an administrator, one of your main responsibilities is to manage the roles of your team members. You have the ability to assign different permissions based on each user’s responsibilities, ensuring that everyone has the appropriate level of access to content and page settings.

All team management settings are adjusted via your My Organization page.

NOTE: All CORE administrators must ensure the people within their commands who publish/release content on are current on their annual Operational Security training, per AR 530-1. This will be PAO/OPSEC training specific to people whose duties include operating or maintaining sites. For more information about the training, visit

Summary of user roles

Has no publishing capability, but can write and edit his or her own articles
Releasing Contributor
Can write, upload photos to, edit, and release his or her own articles
Has access to edit and release articles from all users within an organization
Has access to manage all aspects of an organization’s content and webpage
Controls all team management and administrative settings

Each user role is capable of everything that a less powerful role is capable of. In other words, Publishers can do everything that an Editor can do, Editors can do everything a Releasing Contributor can do, and so on.

TIP: Before changing a user’s role, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with all of the permission levels that CORE offers. For more detailed explanations on the above options, visit Roles and Permissions.
