How to assign a user to be able multiple articles

Post by spjones1 » Sun Mar 24, 2019 5:08 pm

I have about 20 articles that I want to assign to one user the rights to edit, what is the easiest way to do this? I have tried a bunch of different ways, but no luck.

Thanks

-Steve

Normally you don't assign a single user to have certain rights (even though you can do it). Normally we assign roles—that is, the ability to perform certain actions—to objects (such as articles) and then assign users to those roles. It's possible to create a role to work with certain objects and then assign a single user to that role, if that's what you want to do.

I have a question for you. When you write that you've "tried a bunch of different ways", what ways have you tried? ???

Suggest that you read about role-based ACLs in the J! documentation.
