Roles and rights changes in Sitecore 10

Created: 23 Aug 2020, last update: 12 Sep 2020

Roles and rights changes in Sitecore 10, discover a few thing you don't read in the release notes.

Compare to Sitecore 9.3 there is almost nothing’s changes when it comes to the role and rights. In the master database all role and rights are the same, when it comes to the core product without SXA. Because I created the Sitecore-Security-Rights-Reporting module I’m interested in the changes, and also found out it is a alternative way to take a look at changes in releases. And found things I missed in the release notes.

New rights are for new item in the core database:
/sitecore/client/Applications/ECM/AccessFolder/AdministratorArea
/sitecore/client/Applications/ECM/AccessFolder/CampaignCreation
/sitecore/client/Applications/ECM/AccessFolder/Delivery
For EXM roles.


Also some items with rights are removed the image editor is removed and the Search, also in the Control panel, the Database usage dialog is removed, And for the Generate SOLR schema the right Client Authoring right are removed this is an Admin Task.

The Image Field is cleaned up the Edit image is removed. And the Image editor is removed from the Desktop menu. Use Sitecore Content Hub for scaling, create rendering variants and managing your image. If you take a look at the release notes of Sitecore 10 you see fix issue:
In the Image Editor, the Crop/Vertical/Horizontal/Rotate Right/Rotate Left/Resize functionality throws exceptions. 134934

Look likes it is fixed by removing the functionality, also can you remember the take a screenshot functionality from Sitecore 9. So compare to 9.0 again a buttons with relative complex not core functionality is removed,

This is how the Image Field look like in Sitecore 10, without Content Hub

Also the Database Usage in the Control panel is removed, I didn’t found that in the release notes.

This Database usage Dialoge form Sitecore 9.3 and older is gone in Sitecore 10

And he Search dialog is gone. I'm not going to miss it either, the search in content editor is still there. But also , I didn’t found that in the release notes.

The Image editor and Search are removed from Sitecore 10
