 🚩 Challenge

For growing stores with numerous staff an improved security level is essential. General access for all managers and admins is not convenient for the workers and may be the reason for data loss, as any of them can make a crucial mistake. To provide proper security, store owners must set flexible access limitations and restrictions based on employee position.


With the Advanced Permissions Magento 2 extension, you can easily create admin roles with a custom set of permissions and assign them to corresponding store managers so that they will get limited access to backend tabs. Let each admin user see and edit only particular products, categories, store views and websites.

Enhance Store Security with Advanced Permissions Features

Due to the Magento 2 permissions management tool super-admin can restrict the access to particular backend tabs for any sub-administrators. On the store view and the website level you can adjust the access to the main store documents: invoices, transactions, orders, shipments and credit memos. Moreover, the module enables you to limit the access to:

  • Specific products;
  • Categories;
  • Store views;
  • Websites;
  • Product attributes;
  • CMS elements;
  • Dashboard statistics;
  • Reports.

Flexibly Adjust Access Settings

Limit access by store view/website

With the Magento 2 Advanced Permissions, you can allow or restrict the actions of sub-admin users by store-view and/or website. You can enable/disable the following actions:

  • Edit products and categories
  • Manage orders and configuration
  • Manage customers for selected store-view or website

Define roles that can be assigned

With the module, you can let the existing admin users create new ones and limit their ability to assign user roles in Magento 2.


Improve product management

The Magento 2 Advanced Permissions Module enables you, as a super-admin, to choose which products and from which categories can be edited depending on the store view/website level. Also, you can set more specific limitations according to your security policy needs:

  • Assign certain products to particular admin users
  • View and edit the products created by any user
  • Prevent products from being deleted
  • Allow managers to view product owners
  • Allow/disallow admins to edit product owners

Change product owner

Within the default Magento functionality, once an admin user creates a product, he/she automatically becomes the product owner. With the extension, the super-admin can easily control and manage product affiliation: all that is needed is to change a product owner right on the corresponding product page.

Lock access to CMS tabs

With Magento 2 user permissions tool you can easily restrict access to particular CMS elements for different admin roles. Limit the availability to edit and delete CMS pages, blocks and widgets by restricting the visibility on a webstore/store view level.

Adjust category management

Set category permissions to let specific Magento 2 admin users manage only particular categories. The feature is extremely useful in cases you have managers who are responsible for particular categories. For example, you can configure the Magento user permissions so that the user can see all the store categories, but will be able to edit only specific ones.

Limit access to particular product attributes

Besides limiting the access on a category level, the Advanced Permissions for Magento 2 extension allows you to limit access to attributes for certain user roles. Moreover, you can specify the desired list of attributes available for each role and allow/disallow the access.


Customize display of dashboard statistics

Magento 2 Admin Permissions Extension also allows you to restrict the display of Dashboard statistics according to store-view and website restrictions and permissions. The feature will help you to provide your managers with relevant data and protect important store information in cases you don’t want to let particular workers view the general statistics. You can also grant the access to the statistics only if you have an analyst.

Restrict access to reports tab

Limit the access to reports depending on sub-admin's role permission to let them see the information they really need. Thus, you will speed up data analysis and processing by optimizing your managers workflow. The option will also help you to keep your store data safe and properly updated.
