Custom User Group in J4

Post by ceford » Tue Oct 15, 2019 12:45 pm

I have a Joomla 3 Component that makes use of a custom User Group 'Branch' that is a child of Registered and a member of the 'Special' Viewing Access Level. Branch is Allowed the various Admin permissions. That works fine - a Branch user can only see and use that one component in the Admin interface.

In Joomla 4.11Alpha I have the same settings. It mostly works similarly. However, the Components Dashboard icon shows a dashboard with all components. Click any link leads to a 'You don't have permission...' screen, which is as it should be. However, it would be better if the disallowed dashboard items were not shown at all. I don't know if this is a bug or wrong default permission setting or if there is some other configuration item to set.

Also, there is a problem with the title bar. The Version and Private messages icons should not be seen. And the User / Edit Account dropdown leads to a 'You don't have permission' message.

This one is a known bug which is marked as a release blocker

For the rest please can you post this as a new issue at
