Permissons to user


Level 5

Hi All,

Give everyone Create and Download access, no install and replicate on PROD.

I have given permissions as per the attached screen shot.

Is there any way to restrict installation of package by user.

In your screenshot - you have enabled package permissions. Looks like the permissions should enable the user to install packages. Typically however - users (authros) should not have package permissions - this should be an admin task.

I tested this - a user whom is in content-author group does not have access to packages - even installing them. 

So to prevent users from this - place them in the applicable groups.

Hi Scott,

I repeat my Question, may be some were i was not able to explain my requirement.


DEV team need user, who has read permission to Packmgr and creating package. That user should not be able install replicate or delete a package.


Permission which I have given seems to be working.



Agreeing with Scott, It is consider as best practice to allow administrators users to install the packages.

If you look at the access properties of administrators group, you will see that it has all the access checked for package folder. Whereas if we consider content-author group whose role is for content editing, do not have access rights for package.

I would request you to please have a look at this documentation :- https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-2/administer/security/security.html

and also have a look at the permission access for these groups in http://localhost:4502/useradmin
