Protecting Items

Protecting Items

Protected Items

  • An item property that determines whether Sitecore allows modifications to an item
  • An item cannot be modified, moved, deleted, or renamed when it is protected
  • Protected is an item property, not a security setting
    • Protected items do not restrict .NET code from modifying an item
    • Administrators cannot modify a protected item except to turn off the protected status of the item

Removing Protection

Step 1 - Select the item in the Content Tree

Step 2 - Select the Unprotect Item command on the Configure tab of the Ribbon
