CEDI sub-pages inheriting permissions from parent page

Hello,

Apologies if this question was already answered somewhere.
Are CEDI sub-pages supposed to, by default, inherit the permissions set for their parent page? For a CEDI page I had set permissions for only a certain usergroup to view it, and I wanted this to carry over automatically to all of its sub-pages. However it doesn't seem to be working.

It's true that if other usergroups are drilling into the CEDI tree in a normal way they don't see the parent page, and therefore don't see the sub-pages. However, if they go to the 'Page change-log' screen, they can see links to all those sub-pages. They can click on one and view the page.

Do I really have to set permissions for each sub-page manually?
Thank you

Category permissions aren't inherited in ocPortal (especially as actually CEDI isn't a strict tree-structure, as a page can have multiple parents). However, you can use the Permissions Tree Editor to mass select items for permission setting in bulk. Find the CEDI module under the site zone, and use ctrl/shift clicking to select ranges of page nodes that you want to set permissions for.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
