Can authors directly open a folder they have read permissions to (as granted through the folder's containing folders), even if "hidden" in other folders in the CME?
To consolidate schemas into fewer publications while controlling their availability to different groups and/or publications, we can use subfolders and permissions.
In the following folder setup certain authors would have
read on the Editorial Schemas folder.
- Building Blocks
- Editorial Schemas (set to
readfor regular authors)
- System Schemas
These authors only see the "Editorial" Schemas when creating components. If they have the links, they could directly open these schemas in read-only mode.
If the containing Schemas folder also has
read, should these authors be able to directly open the folder in the CME?
Testing this, I get the following (on the folder's parent folder) and suspect each displayed folder is checked against permissions.
You do not have permission to perform this action.
Unable to get Title of Folder (tcm:5-14-2).
Background: I'm looking for a way to at show authors "hidden" items at in at least read-only mode and thought this might be a good use case for Bundles. I can let certain authors see the normally hidden subfolders in a Bundle, but they can't open them. Maybe a Custom Page or adding all the schemas to this Bundle would be better?
