Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
In Drupal 7 (before the release of Drupal 7.50) the following permissions allowed you to immediately configure the fields and display of the respective entities:
- Administer content types (nodes and comment in case comments is enabled)
- Administer users
- Administer taxonomy
(In Drupal 7.50 and later, the "Administer fields" permission is also required.)
In Drupal 8, each fieldable entity automatically gets a separate permission to manage the fields and/or display:
- Entity type x: Administer fields
- Entity type x: Administer display
The various "Administer fields" permissions are also labeled as secure permissions and should only be granted to trusted site administrators.
