I could not find the list of default permissions for the everyone group. I am trying to give project-users permissions to \home\users and \home\groups as described in the Project Management documentation. I run into a problem because everyone is part of the project-users group and everyone is denied access to \home.
Do I simply remove everyone from the list of members in the project-users group?
If I understand correctly you have a conflict for you custom group with everyone group. at times when there is a conflict, you can add ACLs directly using the CRXDe lite console and make sure you new ACL is at the bottom of the list as its evaluated top to bottom fashion. Refer screenshot below. Hope this helps!
Every user in AEM is a member of the group everyone, even though you may not see the group or the membership relation in all tools. This group can be thought of as the default rights as it can be used to apply permissions for everyone, even users that will be created in the future. So now you are saying that when you created a new user group i.e. project-users, you see everyone a member of this group by default ?
