This dialog is divided into two independent sections - Permissions and Access.

 

Permissions

 

Here you can specify the document-level permissions for the given document.

 

 

 

Document-level and global permissions

 

Please remember that the document level permissions defined on this tab are combined with global permissions.

 

 

Breaking and restoring permission inheritance

 

In case you need to break the permission inheritance and configure different permissions for some site section, you need to click Change permission inheritance... link in the Security dialog and choose one of the following options:
 

Break inheritance and copy parent permissions - breaks permission inheritance and adds parent permissions to the document, while original permissions configured for the document are preserved.
Break inheritance and remove parent permissions - breaks inheritance and removes all permissions inherited from the parent, while additional permissions configured for the document will be preserved.

 

If you decide to inherit the permissions from the parent again, click the Change permission inheritance... link on the Security tab. Two options will be offered:

 

Restore inheritance to parent document permissions (current document only) - makes the current document inherit permissions of the parent document
Recursively restore inheritance to parent document permissions (current and all child documents) - makes the current document and all its child documents inherit permissions of the parent document, while only documents which do not inherit parent permissions are affected by this action.

 

Access

 

In this section, the following two options are available:

 

Requires authentication:

 

Yes - authentication is required to access the page
No - authentication is not required to access the page
Inherits - value of the setting is required from the parent page

 

Requires SSL:

 

Yes - users trying to access the page will be redirected to the HTTPS URL of the page
No - users trying to access the page will access the page via the protocol from that they are comming (i.e. they will not be explicitly redirected to the secured URL, but if they are coming from a secured URL, they will access the page via secured URL)
Inherits - settings of the parent page will be used
Never - users trying to access the page will be explicitly redirected to the non-secured version of the page
