Upload file with granular access

Hi,

All public users in front and must be able to downoad any documents of categories.
A group of registered users (editor of type "A") is the owner of specific categories (a1, a2, a3, ecc).
Another group of registered users (editor of type "B) is the owner of other specific categories (b1, b2, b3).

I am tryng to set up the component as joomla default item managment: that is if a user of group "A" login in front end, he can upload an item but can assign it to one of catergory of his group only (a1, a2, a3).
It happens instead that he can see all the cateries (a1, a2, a3, b1, b2, b3 ecc).
Is there a way to limit in upload task the listed category in popup to the ones of his group??

Regards

Fabio

Hello,

This is probably happening because the usergroup from user A probably has upload access to categories bX. If you remove the create permission to this group then he won't be able to see those categories in the form.

Does this help?
