I am looking to modify Magento to support the addition of multi-vendor functionality. Specifically, the ability to have different users being able to see only a restricted set of products that they can add / edit. (As an example, think of a site where vendors are allowed to log in independently and upload and maintain their own items, which are a subset of the entire store’s catalog)
In March, Lior from Varien said that “You will have to modify Admin Users permissions module to be able to limit each user to a specific Store Information.” This seems like it is exactly on the right track, however I’m wondering if someone can provide me with a slightly more specific explanation of where I need to go.
I’m a very experienced programmer but I’ve just gotten started with Magento and it’s a little daunting to wade through the enormous code base to find out where I need to be looking. If someone could just point me to the right files / routines, I’d be very grateful. Thanks!
