Setting Widget Permissions¶
All of Liferay’s widgets support Liferay DXP robust, fine-grained permissions system. Some higher level permissions can be configured in the permissions tab of the widget’s configuration dialog box. You can grant Roles permission to:
Add a display template
Modify the widget’s permissions
Modify the widget’s preferences
Configure the app
View the widget
Add the widget to a page
Go to the widget’s Options icon () and select Permissions. This shows you a table of Roles.
Use the check boxes to grant certain permissions to different Roles. Click Save after you’ve made your selections.
Specific permissions are generally defined for specific widgets. For example, Message Boards contains a Ban User permission. This makes no sense in the context of most other widgets. You can go over permissions for specific widgets in the sections for those widgets.
