Need to grant access to administration

Post by yodam » Sat Apr 11, 2020 4:37 pm

Hi,
I need to grant access to some kind of users on Joomla Administration.

I have:

Moderator of component1 that NOT need to access administration
Moderator of component2 that need to access administration
Moderator of component3 that need to access administration

Now if I give to a user component1 and component2 moderator access, the user loose the access to administration because component1 can not access administration.

How can I do to not make user loose access to administration?

Thanks!

Create a user group with Registered as parent
In Global config Allow admin login
In the Component's Options ... give the Permissions required.

Siblings ACL conflict

Post by yodam » Sun May 17, 2020 3:15 pm

Hi,
I've already asked a similar question but I've not understood the answer (my fault).

1) I need to give administrative access to moderators

2) I have a component for advertisment, in back-end the "Ad moderator" checks if the Ad is acceptable

3) I have a forum component, "Forum moderator" checks in administration if posts of users are acceptable

I'm thinking to do this ACL like this:

Manager
|
|---Ad moderator
|
|---Forum moderator
|
|---XXXXX Moderator

now Forum moderator hasn't access to "Ad Component" and Ad Moderator hasn't access to "Forum Component".

If I need to grant both the administrative privilages to the same user, I can't just add both "Forum moderator" and "Ad moderator" to his "Assigned User Groups"
because they will conflict each other and for every "Action" it will automatically chose the more restrictive permission setting between the conflicting ones.

How have I to set my ACL to avoid this situation?

My purpose is to have a user and give him access to every component in administration by selecting Ad moderator, Forum moderator, XXXXX Moderator, etc.

Thanks!

Wrong to mix different groups. Permissions inherited downwards.


|>Ad Author (Registered as parent) ... in Ad category allow Create, Edit own
|>>Ad Moderator (Ad Author as parent) ... in Ad category Create and Edit own will be inherited. Allow Edit, Delete.

|>Forum Author (Registered as parent) ... in Forum category allow Create, Edit own
|>>Ad Moderator (Forum Author as parent) ... in Forum category Create and Edit own will be inherited. Allow Edit, Delete.

If you want them to access backend
Select each in the 'Special' view/access (admin menu module is 'Special' view level).
In Gobal config allow admin login
In Article config allow admin interface.
