hi @trivenivelaga 

 

Try to log out and check again ( maybe incognito ). Ideally, the change is reflected instantly- By the way what scenario you are trying to achieve here?

So you can try to "deny" all check .

After that you need to select the section /pages which you need to allow for that user.

Here i denied the permissions for about-us and equipment pages of a site.

But on the site there is no changes, these denied permissions are not reflecting on site.

This permissions would cater only on author , are you expecting an end user not to modify , edit the pages ?

what i am expecting is , i have changed the read and modify permissions of about us page, so when i open about us open page I did not able to read the content on that page. So how can I get this?

Without getting into details, I suggest you a couple of milestones regarding the permissions management:

 

1) the administrator user is the only one that can and must access everything with every possible operation. The administrator has even access the Felix OSGi console so do your math. Reducing its privileges is a nonsense. Moreover, I would not be surprised whether some permission comes as immutable and by default. The fact is that you start every brand new AEM instance with a predefined admin by default and the only thing you should do is to modify its password. So please, create instead an editorial group and work with it leaving the full permissions to the admin.

 

2) The administrator user, among all the other things, is the only one that can "impersonate" the other users. In the old UI, in example the useradmin page, you can open the top-right menu and chose to impersonate another user to check if the permissions work properly.

If I were you, I would create a new editorial group (or just a user), set its permissions and then I would verify it quickly by impersonating it.

Hi,

 

Over here the basic permissions required for login into the aem instance are missing.

 

You can overcome this, by adding the "contributor" group to the user you have created.

Hi, 

 

The permissions can be applied at the user level and as well at the group level.

 

If you are applying for permissions at the group level and there is a deny permission at the user level, so user level will take precedence over here.

 

So, the first recommendation would be to remove all the permission that you have applied to the environment. For that, you can refer to

Once done with the above, then apply for the permission at the respective content one by one and check if the things are reflecting correctly or not.

 

You can also validate the same from http://localhost:4502/crx/explorer/index.jsp
