Restricting writing rights by category inside a workspace
In our JCMS 7.1.3 intranet site, we are associating a certain group of "contributors" to a given workspace, and then giving them writing rights to a set of content types. After that, we restrict the "category use rights" and the "category editor rights" to a given set of categories.
It seems that the members of this group have the rights to modify every publication of the content types in the workspace (according to the writing rights), even if they don't belong to the categories set for the group.
Is it possible to change this behavior somehow, so that the writing rights affect only to publications in a set of categories?
Thanks in advance!
If I correctly understand your need, the feature you are looking is provided by the Category Rights Plugin :
This plugin provides a new read access policy for the publications. This policy propagates the category rights to the publications. A publication is not visible for a member if it uses at least one category this member cannot access.
Thanks for your reply. We are actually using the Category Rights Plugin (version 2.0.2) already. However, as far as I understood, it's rather related to read access, not to writing rights. Is it possible to configure it to handle writing rights too?
