Access Manager (ACL)
From Elxis Official Documentation
We will appreciate any help. Thank you!
The Elxis Access Manager (ACL or Access Control List)
The security layout that the ACL currently uses is commonly used by the majority of Content Management Systems and Elxis.
It provides access to visitors for viewing the front-end of the website while providing Elxis users and administrators various levels of access privileges.
This ACL is used only by the Elxis admin to make changes to the security layout that gives users access rights and privileges to the backend and various modules, components, and program functions.
Explanation of the abbreviated names used in the access rights.
|ACL||Access Control List||Permissions list for an object|
|ACO||Access Control Object||Object to deny or allow access to|
|AXO||Access eXtension Object||Extended object to deny or allow access to|
|ARO||Access Request Object||Object requesting access|
Note: do not modify original access groups and/or settings for your safety.
The Elxis ACL access control list works using inheritance. That is that each group can inherit permissions from a group with lower access rights. Therefore, when creating a new group, the assignment of the parent group is important to the security that the new group will inherit. The new group will appear in the Groups Hierarchy according to the position that it has inherited.
Front-end rights are inherited by Back-end users but the opposite is a conflict of security access rights.
When creating a new group, to assign that group to a user, the admin must logout first. This is required for the program to reload access settings. Login and then you can re-assign your users to the newly created groups through the Access Rights.
