User access based on Components in AEM page

Tanmay137

Dear Members - I've come across a scenario. I have an AEM Page which contains 4 components. Based on the User restricted components must be displayed on the page.

NOTE: I am on AEM 6.4

Example:

One group of User - Can access certain components.

Second group of User - Can access other different components.

Can I achieve this using AEM Permission? Any advice on this is appreciated.


Thank you.

HI,

What did you mean by accessing components?

  • If you mean by accessing components while adding in parsys.

This can be done by just removing permissions of that component from for those particular users, you can do groups segregation and add users on those groups ,which has permission to access those components.

  • if you mean accessing component from runtime,

you can do it with Java + HTL

<sly data-sly-use.render="com.my.package.RenderComp" data-sly-test="${render.isShown}">

....

</sly>

Thanks

Not really, let me re-iterate.

I have a Page, there are 4 component:

1. Component 1 & 2 - Should be visible to one user group.

2. Component 3 & 4 - Should be visible to another user group.


Thanks.

Is this not the scenario that Arun mentioned by setting permissions;

"This can be done by just removing permissions of that component from for those particular users, you can do groups segregation and add users on those groups ,which has permission to access those components."

In order for this to work you will need to add a property jcr:mixinTypes with value rep:AccessControllable to your custom components.
