Adding custom security policy limitations to your modules

This tutorial will show you how to deal with custom security policy limitations for your modules. Once read, you will be able to fully take advantage of the granularity in eZ Publish's security and access control system.


As you might know, eZ Publish user access control is pretty precise and has a very fine granularity. Most ofkernel modules allow indeed to limit access to themselves thanks to security policies we can assign to a user or to a user group.

With these limitations, one can precisely define what a contributor has the right to do regarding content and functionalities.
