I'm trying to create an specific editor group which allows the logged in editor to Read/Edit products and variants but NOT create them.
Step 1:I've created a group called 'CatalogEditor' and i've setup the mapped role for the CatalogManager. Enabling this mapped role will enable the Commerce tab when logged into the CMS. Removing this mapped role will remove the Commerce tab as expected.
Step 2:Login to CMS -> Admin -> Config -> Permissions to Functions
Set EDIT CATALOG ENTRIES permission for 'CatalogEditor' group in Step 1
set VIEW CATALOG ENTRIES permission for
Step 3:Login as the CatalogEditor group user and see that I can't create but can view/edit and entry.this setup doesn't work... I'm assuming that these permissions are only to be applied on the old Commerce Manager back end?
Anyone got any experience with this?
Yes, that's correct. The permission system you used only applied for Commerce Manager. The access rights to Catalog UI is yet to implemented - we will, but it won't happen any time soon.
