Sitecore Standard Template: Insert Options Section

This blog post contains information about the fields in the Insert Options section of the standard template in the Sitecore ASP.NET web Content Management System (CMS) and Experience Platform (XP). For more information about the standard template and topics mentioned in this blog post, see the links in the Resources section at the end of this page.

The Insert Options section of the standard template contains fields that define insert options for the item. Insert options control which types of items CMS users can create (insert) beneath existing items. In general, best practice is to assign insert options in standard values for data templates rather than individual items.

  • __Insert Rules (N/A): Insert rules to apply to insert options. In general, I advise the use of insert options rules, which use the rules engine, rather than insert rules, which use functionality more specific to insert options.
  • __Masters (Sitecore.FieldIDs.Branches and Sitecore.FieldIDs.Masters): Insert options for the item (masters is an old name for functionality similar to insert options).


  • Hi,  We have the below requirement -  1. CMS Platform will be accessible on company network only. 2. However, we need to create guest logins for our users who will access site over internet. 3. We are planning to have 2 different authentication models  - one for company users and other for internet users.  Question is if Sitecore offers Hybrid Identity configuration feature, where in we can provide temporary credentials for guest users who will be able to access site over internet.
