    I am trying to create different libraries with permissions based on roles. For example, LibraryA can only be seen by a user in RoleA and so on, but when I log in to the site with RoleB user or RoleC user I see the files from every library even though they all have permissions set to allow view from their specific role. Any ideas?

    Neither, if i allow access to backend with access to view documents and files it still shows all libraries even if that role has been exclusively denied access to the library same thing with frontend.

    Hi Hector,

    Could you please tell us whether you are using the latest Sitefinity version? When trying to open a protected document, for instance, you should get a 403 Forbidden response. Could you please provide us steps to reproduce the problem you are experiencing?

    Regards,

    Hello Nikola,

     

    We are using Sitefinity 7.2. I created libraries A,B,C along with roles A,B,C and granted view/manage access to libraries based on their role, so library A can only be seen and managed by role A user and so on but when I log on with any other user from role C for example i can still see all the libraries A,B,C even though they have all been modified to provide view/manage access to their specific role. Even when I explicitly deny access to a specific user i can still see all the libraries even the ones denied to it.

     

    Thanks,

    Hector Rodriguez

    Only the libraries not the contents within, that's a good test i hadn't checked that. I figured if they could see the library they could also see the documents inside but I never actually clicked on them. Is there anyway to not show those libraries that the user doesn't have access to?

     

    Thanks,

    Hector Rodriguez

    Dear Hector

    That's what I thought. The same thing happens when you give some role access to only one page. You can still see all but cant edit it.

    I for one have never had the need to hide the other libraries. So I can't help you there. But I think this will not come out of the box.

    Ask Telerik or Steve :-)

    I signed up for a 30 day demo and I tested it with the same configuration and it seems to be working properly there but not mine, I have been looking everywhere but haven't able to find a fix :(

    Markus,

     

    I was able to find a fix in this link here. I applied the setting and after that problem solved. Hope it helps.
