As mentioned in the Permissions Overview, Solodev supports granular permissions that allows administrators to create a permission system – assigning users and groups to specific objects. This document will show the administrator how to assign permissions to groups globally before assigning users and groups to specific ‘Actions’ and ‘Resources’ in the Solodev CMS system. 

Step 1 – Globally Assigning Resources and Actions to Groups

  • Select the desired resources and the associated roles.
  • Click Submit.
  • Refresh the page to view the list of resources made accessible to the group.
