Allow read only mode view of permissions for users w.r.t groups in Permissions Console


Community Advisor


Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Displaying Permissions flowing from Groups to a User in AEM for view only purpose.
Use-case: Currently, the permissions console in AEM is streamlined into Users, Groups and View All. This allows to search for Users and Groups and then see the permissions.
The permissions are seen distinctly for users and groups. But often a user is associated with multiple groups and thus has overlapping set of permissions. To see this currently, we have to see the groups user is tagged to and then explore each group permissions individually.
If we could have a section within permissions window which allows us to see different permissions received from the groups it would help see the overall access control better.

Current/Experienced Behavior: AEM Product Admin has to see permissions for individual and groups separately.

Improved/Expected Behavior: A user console where permissions assigned to user and permissions flowing from groups to user are visible. The latter can be non-editable view only as the permissions for groups should be changed from the groups permission console.
