    Hello there,

    It has been a while since I have found something missing from Sitefinity.   But this is an easy one for you :)

    I got asked by a client if I could rename one of the Security Roles, I note there is no functionality that exists in the Sitefinity admin section for this.  Is the a particular reason for this, like it would break some other part of that system?

    If there is no reason could I suggest we add this?

    Thanks
    Sean

    Sorry to double post but I think I can see why, looking at the database all the modules store the Role using its RoleName as opposed to its RoleID.

    I think that makes this feature that much more important because it makes it a rather delicate task trying to rename it through the database tables...

    Kind Regards
    Sean

    Hi Sean,

    Thank you for using our services.

    For Stefinity security, the name of the role is an identification. Sitefinity uses Membership services for getting the roles. Therefore, RoleID and database implementation does not matter. If there is a option to rename a role, this will result as a new role for Sitefinity.

    Best wishes,
