Hello!

VM 3.8.9 10473
Joomla!3.10.3

I have created a user group with all permissions 'not allowed', except the following ones (see also attachment):
- Access Administration Interface
- Product access
- Product edit
- Product create

Users assigned to this user group are not able to see unpublished product categories in product backend.
What user permission is needed for that?

Thank you very much for your help!

Kind regards,
Gerald

Hi!

Thank you for your message.
Is that a question or a statement?
What does 'Category edit state' allow? (any documentation anywhere?)

Kind regards,
Gerald

Try 'Category access' enabled

'Category edit state' does not make a difference in this issue.
'Category access' indeed makes also the unpublished categories available in product backend. What else does this permission allow?
And why does VM make a difference between published and unpublished categories in the product backend at all?
