User Control

The purpose of the users control module is to manage back-office users creation and the associated roles and assignment to groups.

Next, we will help you create a new role, a group that has that role associated and a user that we want to assign to that group.

Creating a New Role

A new role can have one or more rules assigned to it. These rules can allow and deny the corresponding user to view a section (module) from the menu or take specific actions (e.g. edit a customer address).

1.

On the left side navigation bar, select Users Control > Roles

Navigation Users

2.

Click the Add new Roles button in the top right corner

User Roles

3.

Enter a name for the role and click the Create button

Add Role

Next, you need to add a set of rules to the role you just created. The rule sets describe the permissions associated to that role; they can be set on module, controller or action level.

4.

In the Rule section a set of rules can be added to the new role

  1. Enter the module name (e.g. sales, customer)
    each module from the left side menu corresponds to a module and can be identified by its URL (e.g. /sales). By filling this field with *, all possible bundles are selected.
  2. Enter the controller name (e.g. /cms/page)
    each module has one or more controllers and can be identified by the URL that makes a request to their index action (e.g. /cms/page). By filling this field with *, all possible controllers for the module that was filled in at the previous step are selected.
  3. Enter the action name (e.g. /edit)
    fill in with one of the actions for the controller that was filled in at the previous step. By filling this field with *, all possible actions for the controller that was filled in at the previous step are selected.

5.

Configure the permission for the selection made at the previous step (allow/deny)

Example: this role denies the access to the entire sales module:

Role One

This role allows the creation of new CMS pages:

Role Two

Click on Add Rule button in order to add the rule to the role.
