Restricting Acess to a Category

Post by Aguadiablo » Sun Dec 06, 2020 9:14 pm

I have a group of users with permissions enabled on Create, Delete, Edit, Edit State and Edit Own. However, I would prefer it if their permission access was restricted to a specific category for the different users.

For example;

User A can create, delete, edit etc in Category A but not Category B or C
Whilst user B can create, delete, edit etc in Category B but not Category A or C
Then, of course, user C can create, delete, edit etc in Category C but not Category A or B

Is that possible at all?

Don't give the user's permissions globally, but on the category.

Set the permissions on the Permission tab in the category.
