Description

Hi,

as written to the dev list, I had the problem to restrict access to some newsletters but not to all. I found a solution, but I am not sure, if this breaks nothing else. Here is the problem:

I want to set up some newsletters: One with access from anybody (anonymous users can subscribe and view the archive) and some others with access only for special groups of users.

On global permission page I set 'tiki_p_list_newsletters' and 'tiki_p_subscribe_email' for anonymous users (this permissions are not available on the object permission page).

On the object permission page for the single newsletter (accessible through /tiki-admin_newsletters.php and the key icon of every newsletter) I activate 'tiki_p_subscribe_newsletters' and 'tiki_p_view_newsletter' for the group of users with permissions on this newsletter.

With this settings I would expect, that an anonymous user browsing page tiki-newsletters.php would see the list of newsletters, in this case showing only the public newsletter. But in this case there is an error (You are not logged in). As a privileged user (allowed to see all newsletters) the page is accessible but empty, not showing any newsletter.

Solution

The problem, not seeing any newsletter on tiki-newsletters.php is solvedby setting 'tiki_p_subscribe_newsletters' on global permissions for anybody. But I get a still the problem to put restrictions on the archives.

I was thinking, that setting "tiki_p_view_newsletter" to get access to the archives is the key. I set this permission on the object permissions only. But this is not working. Accessing 'tiki-newsletter_archives.php" is impossible for anonymous users, regardless of parameter nlId set to
the correct newsletter or not. Access is granted only, if permission 'tiki_p_view_newsletter' is set as global permission. But then there are no restrictions possible.

I found a solution by patching some code. I am not sure, that the solution I found has n side effects on other parts, so I put it here for discussion.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
