Granting Access

Content Management System (CMS) or website editing access is managed by Primary Web Publishers within each organization that owns content on the UW Bothell website.  Those requesting access to edit content can place a request by following the CMS Website Editing Access request process.  When following the process, an email will be sent to respective Primary Web Publisher's UW Bothell email account.  

There are two roles with different levels of access:

  • Editor: the user can create/edit webpages as well as content, move documents within the content tree, and rename documents (effects the URL). They must notify someone when publishes are needed. Student employees are only allowed this level of access.
  • Publisher:  they have the same access as editor but additionally can archive documents (take them offline but still visiable within Kentio), delete pages and publish changes right away.

Primary Publishers are encouraged to keep the number of Publishers down to as few as possible while the amount of editors to a top level directory may be high. 

Primary Publishers approval process:

  1. Log into the CMS at with your UWB email and password.
  2. Go to Administration > Roles
  3. Select the pencil icon next to the desired role (Editor or Publisher)
  4. Go to Users and select "Add users"
  5. Search for the user by their name or UWB email, select and approve the user to add. The user will now have access to that section of the Web site
  6. Lastly, please respond to their request via their NetID email when completed (Kentico by default emails their address but new employees do not have an email account tied to this address).

Access can also be removed by reversing the above process. If you need to deny someone access, please contact them to let them know so that they may plan accordingly.

 New editor/publishers can find information about the mandatory Kentico training here.

If you have any questions about the process, please send them to UW Bothell Advancement and External Relations Web Team:
