    Hello,

    How do you limit data being displayed on a front end page module builder control to a specific user? I would like users the ability to upload/download files but only see and interact with items they have created.

    Thanks,
    John S.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can achieve this by setting the permissions of the module. Go to "Permissions" of the dynamic module and there you can set View, Create, Modify, Delete, Change owner and Change permissions settings according to your needs.

    Hello Kristian,

    This doesn't seem to take care of what I need. I 'can' set permissions for someone to view or not view for example. But I can't seperate data per user.

    For example, I need from a non Back-End user to be able to upload a file to the users specific page, seeing only their files. There could be 100 users that need to see seperate pages. It is not practical to built a new module for each user.

    Perhaps I miss the intention of the module. Is the module only intended for Backend users?

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,

    No, the dynamic modules are normal modules, and they are not intended for Backend users only. Actually the difference between Backend and Frontend users is the permissions they have. So when you create a user you just tick if you want him to have access to Backed.

    I sincerely apologize about my previous reply, but now that i have made a deeper research it turned out that permissions for items is not supported yet for dynamic content items but will be soon. And the permissions of the dynamic module I told you about are for the backend only.

    If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to contact us/me.

    All the best,

    Kristian,

    You mentioned on a post that permissions for dynamic content items will be supported soon. Do you have any idea of when?
    I am being asked to add this feature to the  5.3 version. Do you have any idea how i can implement this?

    Hello,

    Since we introduced Hierarchical modules for the 5.1 Module Builder release, now  there are two sets of permissions - one for the Module (the original permissions set) and one for each Content type.

    The global permissions for the module are located in Administration->Permissions->YourModule in the left-hand menu.

    And for each content type you can go to Content->YourContentType and in the right-hand menu click on Permissions - there you can set the permissions per item type (by default we have them set to Administrators only).

    Regarding permissions per item level we have a feature request logged in PITS. Hopefully this will be added soon in a future release. If you want to implement it you need to override many classes depending on your exact requirements. However this has never been tried or tested so we could not guaranty it would work.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Wagner,

    Currently the mentioned Feature Request is still Open, you can find it on its new location here (http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/153/Feedback/Details/98997-module-builder-granular-permissions-for-dynamic-content). As a workaround you can apply the solution the team has prepared and documented on our GitHub here (https://github.com/Sitefinity/dynamic-module-view-granular-permissions)
