HOW TO ALLOW USER TO ACCESS ONLY ONE COMPONENT IN ADMIN PANEL IN 4 STEPS

Sometimes you need to allow a user to access and manage only one (or few) Joomla! component in the backend.

This is quite easy to set. From this tutorial you'll learn how to do it. I'll show that on DJ-Classifieds example.

Created user will be able to manage only one component in Joomla! backend.

 

Step 1. Add new user group  

In Joomla admin panel click "Users" in top bar and then "Add New Group"

01-create-group

And then:  

  1. Name your group however you like. I'll call it "DJ-Classifieds"  
  2. Select "Manager" as parent group  
  3. Click "Save & Close"

02-group-settings

 

Step 2. Assign user to the new group  

Edit or create new user and in "Assigned User Groups" tab check the newly created Group (DJ-Classifieds in my case) and click "Save & Close".

03-assign-user-to-group

 

Step 3. Grant access to DJ-Classifieds component  

Click "System" and then "Global Configuration" in submenu

04-global-configuration

Then:

  1. From left menu select "DJ-Classifieds"  
  2. Open"Permissions" tab  
  3. Select "DJ-Classifieds" (this is the group we created earlier)  
  4. In "Access Administration Interface" row  
  5. Select "Allowed"  
  6. And save by clicking "Save & Close"

05-acl-settings

 

Step 4. Disable access to other components  

Now you need to disable access for all components you don't want user to see in beckend.  

In default Joomla! setup you'll need to disable access to:

  • Banners  
  • Contacts  
  • Articles  
  • Smart Search  
  • Media manager  
  • Messaging  
  • News Feeds  
  • Search  
  • Weblinks

To do so:  

For each component that you want to hide from the user go to its "Options" and repeat this scenario:

06-disable-access-to-components

  1. Open "Permissions" tab  
  2. Select "DJ-Classifieds" group (this is the group I created in Step 1.)  
  3. Select "Denied" in "Access Administration Interface"  
  4. And click "Save & Close"

 

You're ready. Now the user has access only to DJ-Classifieds component
