Restrict access to Logman


I need to monitor activities on my website, where there are some members of the staff registered as super admin.

How can I do to make accessible the logs and alerts of Logman only to my super user account, hiding all other super admin users?

Hello Markus,

Making LOGman accessible to only your super administrator account is not possible. This is not a LOGman limitation but a Joomla limitation, the Joomla permission system allows you to limit access per user group not per user.

The best way to solve this is to change the permissions of your other staff members to administrator or even manager and then limit their permissions.

If your other staff members are also super administrators they have the same permissions as you and then can see and do everything. Even if you would hide LOGman from them, they would be able to change the permissions to unhide it again.

This is just how Joomla is intended to work. The solution is to change the permissions level of your other staff members.

I hope that helps.
