    I have 2 users and 2 sites.  I want each user to be able to sync their own site but no the other.

     When I create a ​role that only gives them access to a singe site and left their user permissions the same.  When I remove all groups except the new role, the sync page never loads.  It acts as if it won't allow you to sync anything if you can't sync one thing.  All other security seems to work as expected.

    How do I restrict which site a user can sync??

    Hi Dave,

    I am not sure which version of Sitefinity are you using. In version 8.0 we have introduced the ability to sync per site. Please check the following link for more detailed information:

    Sitefinity 8.0 Released

    Do you want to have your say in the Sitefinity development roadmap? Do you want to know when a feature you requested is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Sitefinity CMS Ideas&Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    I don't think he's talking about the ability for an admin to sync content by site.

    I think he's talking about giving a users (not admin) the permission to only sync one site and not have the permission to sync the other site.

    For example, you have 3 sites setup up in Multisite, Site 1, Site 2 & Site 3.

    John is a content editor on Site 1

    Julie is a content editor on Site 1 & Site 2

    John should only be able to edit content and sync it on Site 1, he shouldn't be able to edit content on Site 2 and especially should NOT be able to sync any content on Site 2.

    Julie should be able to edit content and sync for both Site 1 & Site 2.

    Neither should be able to do anything to Site 3.

    Nothing in the documentation explains how to set permissions by site for syncing.

    Right now if I restrict "Backend Access" by site you can't even get the Sync list to display. So in order to sync any site you have to access to all the sites and have permission to sync them, since access to the sync module appears to be global.

    Hi Telerik,

    I created one Project with 3 sites and one module with different providers for different sites. I need to sync the data from Default Module Provider to another module provider through the staging & syncing Module. 

     Please suggest me as soon as possible.
