User access management

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is the first we are trying to make a page that has only one type of user that has access to every page. 

The other users should only have a given access to specific pages, not to the whole template.

My structure

-Field
 -Organisation
	-Project
		-Report

I want that the "measurer" role only has access to "project x" and it's children, but no view access to every project, organisation or field. I've tried to do this with https://modules.processwire.com/modules/page-edit-per-user/ but it still needs a view access to the whole tree to see the "project x" page. Or is there something I haven't figured out?

Maybe I have to make it via the API: a select field in the "organisation" template where the admins could add the users and then I use hook to update the privileges?

Have you done something like this and how did you accomplish it?

Any help would be appreciated.

If it is only one project per user, you could use this module. If you need to grant a user access to 2 or more branches, you probably need to hide the tree of pages to that user and display accessible pages with a custom module.

I hope I understood your question properly)

I want to achieve that you can give a as many projects you want to a user. But that in $pages->find() the user should see only the pageobjects it has permissions to. I've tried to find how Processwire checks page specific access, but I haven't found it yet. I've tried with $permissions->get() but I only get nullpages, and not the page I've given it access to in the module.

 

I'll keep looking for it in the API-documentation.

Thanks for the help anyway, if you know what API-call I should use, It would be nice.

There's also the following, but be aware the stock module on github has some bugs (see my PRs). I'm also not sure how well it works with pw 3.x. I've used it in the past for assigning multiple types of roles to customer sections in a page.

      As an admin I want to use the API to ask if a page is published - using the $page->isPublished() method - so that I know it's published - as opposed to unpublished or trashed pages. That includes hidden pages.
      This method will correspond to Settings -> Status when editing pages:

      (Published is also mentioned explicitly where the edit page says "Published on [?]".)
      I would expect the API - and specifically the $page->hasStatus() method - to ask if a page has status published.
      But as I can see, it's only possible to ask for exceptions such as isUnpublished() and isHidden().
      <?php // This fails with "Fatal Error: Uncaught Error: Undefined class constant 'statusPublished'" if($page->hasStatus(Page::statusPublished)) { echo 1; } ?> PS: My current use case is that I want to count number of published vs. unpublished pages. I can only do that by getting all pages (include=all), then subtract any unpublished pages.

      Hi guys and ladies! And thanks for Processwire!
      It appears i've got an interesting issue concerning the template-settings-based PW redirects dealing with access control. Any PW template has some access control options i.e. "Login redirect URL or page ID to render". If this option is used for a page having a template with this option filled, a redirect will occur if user is not logged in and/or has insufficient access rights.
      I like to hook PW events. In one of my current projects i decided to write an addHookBefore('Session::redirect', ...) which should store the page we are being redirected from. With "regular" redirects like $session->redirect('/somewhere/') this hook works like a charm. But it was strange to see that it doesn't work with the template-settings-based redirect.
      I'm too dumb to dive deep inside PW and to examine the whole PW session mechanism. But it could be rather logical if ANY redirect ( no matter template-settings-based or using $session->redirect() ) could be hooked in the same manner.
      Okay okay i can forget about template-settings-based redirect and write my own. Just a couple of lines of code, and it works. But it's less elegant than hooking the template-settings-based redirects.
      So am i missing something? It this behavior a bug, or is it intended by PW team? Thanks in advance for any comment!

      My clients wants a modal to show up on every page. But when a user clicks inside the modal -> a session-cookie is set and the modal gets a class.
      // user clicks on modal button $('.modal_button').click(function(){ // 1. set PW session cookie // 2. toggle class $('.modal').toggleClass('off'); }); I know how to set a cookie on page-load via PW-API. But the click on the modal button does not force a page-load. So i have to set the cookie through javascript. Is there a way to do that?

      Hello,
      I'm trying to create a page via api and populate values to it. I can populate everything except user pages to a page reference array.
      Code: 
      $dataUsers = $data->project->users; foreach($dataUsers as $dataUser) { $newProject->projectUsers->add(wire()->pages->find('template=user, id=' . $dataUser->id)); } I'm receiving my data via JSON.
      Is there something I'm missing?
      Thanks for help

      Hi. I'm currently stuck at the login page in my project. Once I enter my admin username and my password and press login, nothing happens. The page just reloads. However, the URL changes from http://myipaddress/processwire to http://myipaddress/processwire/?login=1. I've checked all of my server settings, and to my knowledge, all seems to be fine there. I don't know where to go from here.. Thanks in advance!
