Content Management System allows managing the content easily by controlling and automating significant features of content lifecycle.
Content Management System practices vary by their organizational structures. E-commerce websites, new organizations and educational institutes use CMS but in different ways. This leads to the difference in terminology and process.
For example in a multi-author website, content is created by one or more authors and it may be edited by them sometimes after publishing. The website administrator may or may not give access to edit the publishing content or simply can grant the access rights to one or more individuals for certain content. In some cases, they may give access to edit but not have rights to publish and delete the content.

- Administrator: who has access to all admin features and responsible for managing the access permissions to files and folders by assigning the rights to other users.
- Contributor: having access to create and edit their own content but cannot publish them.
- Editor: somebody who can publish and manage the content including other.
- Viewer: only able to see the content.
