Setting Permissions to View Categories

Prerequisites: Users require site administrator permissions to complete this task.

All groups and users (as does the Everyone group) have full access to categories by default. Child categories inherit viewing permissions from parents. If you set no viewing permissions, or if you add the user or group to the CanView's Selected list, they can view the taxonomy category and children in modules.

You can set category permissions on the Category Management or Deleted Category Management view.

If groups or users lack permission to view the category, they cannot apply the categories to site content.

To allow specific groups or users to view a category:
  1. Log in to Cartella.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Categories.
  3. Click the category in the tree structure.
    The category displays as selected, and the CanApply and CanView options display.
  4. Click Edit for CanView.

    CanView Edit

    The CanView dialog displays.
  5. Optional: Select the Groups or Users tab. Enter a keyword in the Filter field to narrow options in the Available list.
    1. Select or clear the Include Inherited checkbox to display inherited groups and users.
  6. Select the desired groups and users in the Available list. Click the right arrow to move the entries to the Selected List.

    Give CanView Category Permissions to Groups

    To remove viewing permissions, select the desired groups and users in the Selected list. Click the right arrow to move the entries to the Available list.
  7. Click Save.
    Cartella saves the category permissions.
