Prevent user to edit or delete other user's content


I'm currently thinking about installing a new instance of CA for an archive project that will be accessible to many users over time.
I'm wondering if there is a way to have a group of users who are allowed to only edit/delete their own content (collections, objects and entities) and only visualize the other user's content.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!



  • Hi,

    You can enable item level access control is app.conf, then set access on a record-by-record basis to effect this. Look for the perform_item_level_access_checking directive in app.conf. The other relevant directives come right after it.


  • Ok... and is there a way to make this access rule by default for each new record the user creates?

  • Yes, just set the default access.

  • Ok thanks a lot!
