Back-end access for clients

Post by marcusadamski » 15 Jan 2021, 11:28

Hello there,

Could you please let me know how to set up back end access for clients? Obviously, the client shouldn't have access to other parts of the Joomla administration area. Can only specific areas of the Phoca cart back end be made available to clients or do they have to access to all of the component's functionality ? I've looked through the notes, but didn't spot how to approach this. If there's any documentation, please just point me to it and I'll explore it.

Many thanks for your help,
Marcus

Hi Marcus,

I think, it's a matter of Joomla! ACL: https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Access_Con ... t_Tutorial

Kind regards

Hi, as Christine wrote, you can set different rights for different groups.

For example, administrators cannot manage options and they cannot add new items:

Then they cannot access options and cannot add new items:

but e.g. super user can do it:

hello,
i have done this for a customer..
shared sessions and a link to the vendor specific backend url. that way the user does not need to go to /administrator etc..
make sure your backend access is secure..
define a specific user group, define rights of this group in Phoca Cart component, and give the specific user group the right to access the backend.
that way the user can only access phoca cart administrator.

personally i use 2factor (loginguard) to force users to use 2factor configure / login before access to backend..

There is useful plugin called System - Redirect On Backend Login
Set component that user will be redirected to after login and set user groups.

i know that plugin. but still you need to configure ACL inside Joomla.
and in this case if ACL is arranged you can simple publish a user menu item (for that specific usergroup) to access administrator/index.php?option=com_phocacart

that's al fokes..
no extra plugin needed
