Thumbnails not visible for certain users

Hi Guys,

A particular group of users are not given read permission on a particular editable template but want to view the thumbnail on the pages created using the template, is that any way to do that in AEM?

You can achieve this if you are using the Netcentric AC Tool https://github.com/Netcentric/accesscontroltool/blob/develop/docs/Configuration.md 

 

 

 

 

A repGlob expression like "/jcr:*". Please note that repGlobs do not play well together with actions. Use privileges instead (e.g. "jcr:read" instead of read action). See issue #48. If the globbing expression starts with an asterisk, it has to be put between quotes. Using repGlob is a shortcut for rep:glob in sub element restrictions

 

 

 

For example, if access to /conf/we-retail/settings/wcm/templates/hero-page/thumbnail.png file is required then

- [principal]
   - path:/conf/we-retail/settings/wcm/templates
     permission: allow
actions: read repGlob: *thumbnail.png*

You need to grant read permission at least.
