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

Viewing the permissions configuration for a widget.

  1. Go to the widget’s Options icon (Options) and select Permissions. This shows you a table of Roles.

  2. Use the check boxes to grant certain permissions to different Roles. Click Save after you’ve made your selections.

Note

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.
