Stop showing top level folders when you only have access to folders at a lower level.

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

 

I'd like to know if it's possible for users to not see any top level folders in Assets, if they only have access to folders at a lower level.

It means every time they logon, or go to "home", they have to navigate down the top level folders to get to the lower level folder where there are assets they can see/edit.

 

Is it an ACE permission entry for that user group ?

 

Thanks.

 

PS -can that be done for Brand Portal too?

If you only publish to BP a folder say 2 levels down from the top in Assets, then can BP users only see that folder 2 levels down.

And not start at the top and have to navigate down to it?

@GeraintJo  the easiest way to achieve this is to create folder specific group permissions.

E.g. Folder A> Folder B> Folder C> Folder D

if you need Folder D as root folder (for specific users), create a new group, name it Folder D, assign all the permissions to that group> assign users to the users who should be working in Folder D only. 

On their login, they won't see any other higher folders.

  1. Navigate to https://<domain>/security/groups.html
  2. Add new Group
  3. Assign permissions to this level content/dam/folder A/folder B/folder C/folder D
  4. Assign users to the newly created group.
