How to restrict access to certain channels


Restrict user access to certain channels in the app

By default, all users added by super admin are added to the default (Super Admin) user group, which has no access restrictions. All users added by admin are added to the default user group that owned by this admin, which they only have access to the channels owned by this admin. If you want to restrict access of some users to certain channels only, you can create unlimited user groups.

Step 1: Create a user group

To create custom user groups, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Users and select the User groups tab on the top.
  2. Click Add group on the right panel.
  3. Choose a name to your group.
  4. On the right panel, choose the channels that can be accessed by users on this group and click Save.

Step 2: Add users to your user group

Once you created a custom user group, the next step is to associate users to this group, so that their permissions will be changed. There are two ways you can do this: on a group level, or on an individual level.

Bulk adding users to a group

If you want to add multiple users to a user group in one go, you can follow these steps:

  1. On the User groups tab, select the user group you want to add users to.
  2. On the right panel, click on Manage users.
  3. Select the users you want to be part of the user group and Save.

Change user group at individual level

In some cases, you might want to quickly change the permissions of a specific user. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. On the Users tab, select the user you want to change permissions.
  2. On the User group menu on the right, select the user group(s) you want to add this user to, and click Save.


Restrict admin access to certain channels in the CMS

It is mandatory to assign admin to at lease one admin group when adding them. By default, admins do not have access to any existing channels in the CMS. Super admins need to grant admins access to channels before they can start editing an existing channel. Follow below the steps to give channel permission to admin groups.

  1. Open the left side panel where you see all the existing channels;
  2. Click the wheel / settings icon of the channel which you want to give permission to admin groups;
  3. On the right panel of the settings page, there is a section called Details. Open the dropdown of "Give channel permission to admin group";
  4. Click the admin group which you want to give channel permission to.


How to disable sharing for users


If sharing functionality is disabled for a user, this user won't be able to share or download any files from the app. By default, sharing is enabled for all the users, and can be disabled on a user per user level. Please see below the steps for disable sharing:


 

How to delete users


  1. On the CMS, go to Users tab.
  2. Click on the column that shows the user you want to delete.
  3. Click on Delete user. 
  4. Click OK.
  5. The user should be deleted by now.
