Move and delete button are missing for certain security groups


Level 1

Some users belong to a group where the Move and Delete button are missing on GUI.
This groups where copied from other groups who have that options so not sure where this can be added/edited ?

Do you know where this options can be added ( move and delete function) to a particular group only ?

Hi @jc-yme ,

This seems like permission issue.

Please have a check if ACL permission for move and delete is enabled for the group. 


Please have a look at below document which explains in detail.

hello @jc-yme,

Can you please verify that the user group have permissions to "Delete" a certain resource within AEM. A common cause of the missing "Delete" and "Move" button will be because of the usergroup/user does not have ACL permissions to delete.




Verify the CRUD permissions for those groups in /useradmin console.

Also check their ACLs in crx, if it's specific to any node.

These might help figure out the reason.
