The Advanced Permissions Report maps out the exact permissions for any given user group across all assets on your Joomla! installation. It is useful for debugging user access problems.
How to access
- Select Users → Groups from the Administrator menu. Then...
- Select the Permissions icon for a specific group from the user groups list.
In the table containing the assets from your Joomla! site, you will see different columns. For each asset the permission for this group is shown, color coded as per legend.
- Asset Title. The asset as we know it.
- Asset Name. The asset as known internally.
- Site Login. Allows users in the group to login to the Frontend site.
- Administrator Login. Allows users in the group to login to the Backend Administrator site.
- Web Services Login. "MISSING" Needs to be edited.
- Offline Access. Allows users in the group to access the Frontend site when site is offline.
- Super User. Allows users in the group to perform any action over the whole site regardless of any other permission settings.
- Configure Options Only. Allows users in the group to edit the options (except permissions) of any extension.
