Several managers or other team members (marketers, purchasing managers, sales-managers, brand-managers, etc.) use admin panel and with the Magento category permissions option you will let them see only certain categories or products. A store has offices in different countries. With the Magento user permissions tool you can restrict access to products and categories by store-view to let English representatives work with English products, French representatives - with French store, etc. Lots of vendors sell their products on your site, and you want to give them Magento admin permissions to manage only the products, created by them.

Difficult to configure
Module is good and does what it promises, however it took me hours to configure it. I’ve been working with Magento for years, but still felt uncomfortable. I tried to make some coding to adjust the module and ended up asking a support team for help, and they coped with all issues within 3 hours. On the whole, the module is pretty good for adjusting the admin interface and lives up to expectations.
Bien fait!
Nous avons plusieurs départements et de nombreuses personnes travaillant sur le site simultanément. Chaque équipe est responsable pour des choses particulières. Précédemment, nous avons eu quelques problèmes de temps en temps parce que certains employés ont changé les réglages importants par erreur. Une hiérarchie claire des autorisations d'accès est une bonne solution dans ce cas.
Avec cette extension, nous avons réussi à donner aux gestionnaires les autorisations dont ils avaient besoin pour leur travail. En conséquence, le nombre d'erreurs a remarquablement diminué.
Bien fait!

Definitely recommended
I have a multi-store shop and 5 users that are managing products and orders. Each user sees only its store view and domain resources. With this extension I solved all the issues concerning the situation when several people are working in the same store simultaneously. At present there are no confusion, no mistakes.
Nice extension, works as described
It works nice and restricts all kinds of activities for those who work with the store. No bugs or any issues whatsoever, no conflicts with extensions of other vendors as well. Actually the main reason I leave this feedback is that I ask to add IP restriction to the roles as well. I know that they have a separate extension with I P restriction – so maybe just add integration? That would be very helpful and will add to our shop’s security. Thanks.
BTW amasty you guys...rock but it is just a suggestion from my side. I am huge fan of yours extension. Keep working
Great for multiple teams
We have 3 teams based in different locations (Italy, Spain and France) so it’s very hard to control all the changes made from the admin panel. We used to have some products deleted accidently and other unpleasant things. So controlling which site area will be available for each team is a real solvation for us. Our employees are experienced but things happen, you know.
The thing I like most is duplicating roles, it’s so easy, I just don’t need to think how to create each role again, I did it once and then only need to copy the rule and assign it to a new admin, very handy. I would be even more happy if actions log came as a feature of that extension but not as a separate module (yep, to save money). But in general, I’ m happy with the features.
Magento Connect
We have 5 departments and many people working on the site. Each team is responsible for particular things. We used to have problems from time to time as some employees could change important settings by mistake. A clear hierarchy of access permissions is a good solution in that case.
With this extension we managed to give managers only the permissions they needed for their work. As a result, the number of mistakes has remarkably decreased.
We found a few bugs while using that extensions, now all of them are fixed thanks to Amasty support.

Great for big teams
It rocks!!!
This extension ROCKS. I am amazed.

First to say - it is written as module should be written! Clean code and readable for semi-developer.

I already made some adjustment - and it is sooo easy to do it.

For example I use Sales rep module per country. Without this module that simple will not be possible. So each sales rep account now has it own ID in admin where you can then use that ID in special rule permission this module added called Product Owner :) With that and with some other adjustment (change the product attribute to Website scope, change the line in restrictProductCollection function in Model/Rule.php to $collection->addFieldToFilter('amrolepermissions_owner', array('in' => array(2, $userId)));

Now i have this:
each sale rep can SELL all the products they OWN or all products I have added to my GENERAL admin sales rep account. That way each Sales rep can only modify theirs own products, still view and sell other and all products which I do not want that they can see simply left blank in product owner attribute (like configurable products child or special promotion products etc)

I AM REALLY AMAZED WITH IT. And just started to reveal the possibilities....

eep up the good work and plan to expand this great module...
Great when you know the way to use it
Just installed the plugin. I can't call it's intuitive, as I had to reread the manual at least twice to find out the way to set it. But in the end I got a perfectly organized system with custom permissions for all my store views and numerous vendors.
Well done.
We run this extension on 3-lingual store. A very good way to give each translator possibility not to make mistakes when editing products. This also works great with Admin Actions Log extension from Amasty, so I can assign permissions, and see what people are doing. Nicely done.
Looks promising
We are still launching our site and ability to limit permissions for some categories per staff is essential. As we already have a few extensions from Amasty and in general are satisfied (had some minor issues, but they are not really important) , so we've decided give this module a try and it works as expected so far :)
