IIS Manager Permissions

Published: February 29, 2012

Updated: February 29, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2



Use the IIS Manager Permissions feature page to manage IIS Manager users, Windows users, and members of Windows groups that are allowed to connect to a site or an application. Users can configure delegated features in any sites and applications to which you grant them permission from the IIS Manager Permissions page.

This feature is available only for server connections. When you open the feature at the server level in IIS Manager, you can view the users who are granted permission to all sites and applications on the Web server, and you can select a user to remove the user's permission to a site or an application. To grant a user permission to a site or an application, select the site or application and then open the IIS Manager Permissions feature to configure the users who are allowed to connect to that site or application.

Sort the list by clicking one of the feature page column headings or select a value from the Group by drop-down list to group similar items.
