Why Do You Need Magento 2 Advanced Permissions?
An online store may have multiple users who log in and manage various store functionality. Every user must have an account with special permissions that limit to only their areas of responsibility.
Among the many advantages that Magento 2 Permissions module provides, the most important is that the extension allows admins to manage multi-stores and assign new custom role permissions to specific managers. These sub-admins can view and edit only particular products, categories, and websites. The module is easy to use and set up; it is a must-have feature for online stores selling sensitive products.
Ability to show only the data available to the sub-admin in the dashboard, showing only the customers from the available website, preventing sub-admins from deleting products, and easy user role management – these are all about this powerful Magento Advanced Permissions plugin.
Key Advantages That Custom Role Permissions Magento 2 Provides
One of the main criteria for successful online store performance is ensuring data security. With the help of the Advanced Permissions settings, you may improve this criterion and sell more efficiently.
The Advanced Permissions module assists store owners in restricting access to particular websites' parts to specific users or groups. It interdicts employees from accidentally changing existing records or deleting them if they are not allowed to.
Managing user rights correctly
Each store provides its roles and responsibilities for employees. The Magento 2 Permissions extension empowers admins to configure permissions for each role. It can be a supplier, admin, or sub-admin.
High-level access management
Applying such a system, store owners can be sure that only authorized parties may view and manage sensitive info about their products, invoices, customer orders, etc. This helps to provide maximum access security and prevent external people from intervention. Therefore, the risk of data breach eliminates.
How does the module work?
Restrict admin access based on Website, Store view, and Category
The module provides you an option to restrict admin users and allow them to have access to only specific websites or store views.
Also, you can set restrictions for categories so only specific categories can be accessed by an admin user.
Restrict the ability to create products
Using the module, you can restrict admin users from creating new products. Also, you can select specific product types that the admin user can only create.
If you select "Limit ability to Create Product = Yes," and select any specific product type, the admin user can only create the product with the selected type.
Restrict users from updating specific product attribute
The module allows admin users to be restricted from updating specific product attributes. Using this feature, the sub-admin user having limited store access can only update product attributes with store view scope.
Restrict access to Orders, Invoices, Shipments, and Credit memos based on their status
The module provides functionality to set restrictions based on the status of orders, invoices, shipments,s and credit memos.
As shown in the image, the admin user will only be able to see orders that have a "Complete" status.
Similarly, you can restrict Invoices, Shipments, and Credit memos based on their status.
