OCM Repo Granular Permissions Can Still Show Types And Categories With "View" Unchecked (Doc ID 2834757.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Content Management - Version 21.7.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


I found some possibly unexpected behavior with the granular permissions in OCM repository "Member" settings still allowing users to at-least View the entries for asset-types and categories in their repo. (the Repo Granular Permissions under Content > Repositories > select a Repo, Members > click the Pencil icon next to a Group - see Assets and Taxonomies granular permissions).

For Taxonomies, if I add a specific Category and uncheck both View and Categorize and Save for a specific Group, users on that Group can still see this specific Category under the Categories sidebar for Content Items in this Repository. However, to confirm - any assets already assigned to this Category (or at-least this Category) are hidden as expected. I'm not sure if the user should also be able to see the name of the Category itself under the Categories sidebar. Without Categorize, they still can't assign it to an asset, but it does seem odd they can still View the name of the Category in the Categories settings sidebar for an asset in their repository. Some admins might want to also hide the fact that the Category is available in an assigned Taxonomy on that repo itself.

For Assets, if I add a specific Type and uncheck everything including View and Save for a specific Group, users on that Group can still find the name of the Asset-Type under the Repository Filter > Asset-Type dropdown. Unchecking view does indeed hide all assets of this type in their repo and not having the ability to Create also hides the Asset-Type from Create New Item. Some admins might want to had the fact that an asset-type is also associated with the repo for users that are set to not be able to View content of that type.
