Access Configuration with grouped users

Post by rennecke »

Hi.
I'm struggling with configuring access rules for an entity (including sub entity). :?:
I've an entity which holds data belonging to different departments. The access (also view access) should only be possible for users belonging to the department assigned to that data. I tried to use grouped users.
So I configured a field of type "grouped users" in that entity using a global list. Then I accessed users to the items in the global list. I set the access rules to "view assigned only". It does not work. I only get items shown, which are added be that user (field "added by").
So, what do I wrong?
Does any one has some instructions or an example how to get it done? Many thanks. ;)

My mistake. Forgot to add rules for this field type. To fix files from archive replace to:
includes\classes\items\items.php
includes\classes\users\users.php

Let me know if it works ok. Also please check access rules for other entities.

Dear Sergey.
Many thanks, works as expected. Also other access rules work as I configured them.
On field type "user" there is a checkbox "Authorized user by default". Maybe something similar could be assigned to the grouped user field. I know this is more tricky, as a user could be assigned to several "user groups".
Regards Eberhard

The issue is the same user can be assigned to several groups.

Hi.
I have two other issue with the grouped user field:
1. It was not shown in the import field matching configuration:

2. It can not be modified with "update selected" - the field can be selected, but than there are no entries to select:

Hi I am not sure if my issue is similar to this or not , when I create a global list and attach the user to the value, they arent getting any notifications and the item does not show up in assigned only reports ?

This is not solved in 2.5.
Will it be possible to implement into 2.5 final release?
