As the Demo has large parts of the Systems area disabled, can someone please confirm whether Magento can be set up with different people accessing the back-end and whether their roles and permissions can be set? A list of what can be configured would be helpful, thanks.

If you already have an running installation of Magento you can set different permissions to different user and customers through:

System > Permissions > Roles.

If you do not have an installation running please reference this screenshot of available permission options.

Hi

On my production system, the role permission tree does not appear. On my development Server it works perfectly.
I reinstalled version 1.1.4 with Magento Connect, cleared the cache, changed langugae back to default (english, USA) but the tree only appeared once and disappeared again after changing back to german.

I checked with firebug and found out, that it’s not a rendering problem: the HTML code for the tree is missing.

Any idea what could be the source of this problem??

Regards
Marcel

@Marcel, this may be a bug. You should probably file it in the bug tracker.

Is there somewhere a good tutorial on how manage role when overloading and adding controllers, blocks in magento admin.

I added functionality in acl node, it appears in role/permission.
But for some, the role are good and for others not.

I think I missed something and could not find a clue.

I checked the bug tracker and it’s already reported:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/bug-tracking/issue?issue=1592

and discussed here:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/9174/

I compared all the .xml Files in the /app directory between live and development server. No differences --> no clue why the role permission tree is not showing up…

Hi,

I am searching for an extension or way to customize admin users’ permission roles. By now we can set roles to define which areas of admin will be used, but I want the user to be able to access only certain categories of the catalog if I give permission to access catalog products.

Hope you understand what I mean.

Any clues? thanks a lot! smile

did you try system->permissions->roles-> select a role -> role resources -> role scope -> select websites ?

There is also option to restrict permissions with the Sales Reps and Dealers extension, using customer list.  So a dealer can view only his customers and his orders. However there is no restriction for the product management.

Hello,

There is any one who can help me to add new admin user (Sub user) using a magento class’s and functions. I used functions of Mage_Admin_Model_User and Mage_Admin_Model_Mysql4_User classes (such as a both class have ‘add’ function). but i got ‘Integrity constraint violation’ error message.

Also i worked with other functions of those class and got a results without error. but add user function is not working. Could you please help me about required parameters for add function. for example i used
$user_array = array(’role_id’=>11,
‘parent_id’=>5,
‘tree_level’=>2,
‘role_type’=>’U’,
‘username’=>"merchant3",
“firstname"=>"merchant3",
“lastname"=>"merchant3",
“email"=>"merchant3@abc.com",
“is_active"=>1);

If any one has a better idea.....
