Roles: "Create" is not enough. Needs "edit". Silly

Roles: "Create" is not enough. Needs "edit". Silly

Thursday 16 October 2003 11:13:39 am - 1 reply


I just set up some role, who is allowed to create something.
ez gives me an error (no rights), after showing an "edit" URL.
After that, I also gave the role the edit rights. This worked.

Seems, as "create" will let the role create the object, but it also needs "edit" to really do something with it. When you have no "edit" rights, you will just get a draft without data.
This is silly!
Either this should be WELL documented or "create" should always implicate "edit self-created objects.
Or.... did I make some mistake here?

That's no mistake. I had the same problem. After spending an hour trying to figure out why I couldn't create content with the proper roles set I came across this post.

I set permissions for edit and create and now it works. Again, is this how you're supposed to set up roles?
