Reassign Content Ownership

Use the Reassign Content Ownership utility to move ownership permissions from one user/group to another.

Click Choose in the Content Owners field to identify the current owner(s), then click Choose

in the Reassign Ownership To field to identify the new owner(s).

Note: Reassigning ownership does not automatically recreate group memberships.

User records created through the Administrator - User Administration function display in the Add Users or Select Users dialog. Use this dialog to add existing users to groups and organizations at the server, site, subsite, or customer administration levels, or to select users for explicit permission assignments in dialogs that include the Add/Select User(s) option.

This dialog is a standard part of CommonSpot security operations for granting permissions to use left panes, images, image galleries, subsites, elements and custom elements, pages, multimedia, etc.

Use the links at the top to optionally view Users by Name, Users by Group, Groups by Name, or Groups by User. Note that not all of these options may display.

Click column heads to sort names alphabetically or by email, or refine your search by selecting from the dropdowns and optionally entering a value in the text field and clicking Filter, or combine dropdown and text field options with alphanumeric selections and click Filter as shown above for names beginning with E. These filters are useful for limiting results if your installation has many users.

Click checkboxes to select users. Choices display in the Selected box. Click the cancel icon to remove individual users, as shown below, or click Clear All to deselect all users. When you are finished, click Add Selected if you're updating a group, or click Next to complete any required security assignments.

Names within the dialog are displayed in last name, first name, middle name order.

Clicking Save assigns all records to the new user(s). Choose this option, or click Cancel to exit without changing ownership.
