Tag: Global navigation panel access

Restrict access to links in Global navigation panel

We often have to tighten the link access in AEM to limit user access to only few links, like only Sites, Experience fragments.

 

For AEM 6.3 touch UI, if you wish to revoke access on a link in Global Navigation Panel, you will have to follow 2 steps:

  1. Revoke access on the icon that displays the link on Global Navigation Panel
  2. Revoke access on the link resource, so that you cannot access the URL from browser directly.

The following table lists both the icon path and resource that renders a link (Example: Sites, Projects, Screens etc). You would have to revoke read access on relevant paths to meet the customer needs.

Column details:

  • “Browser URL in AEM” is the URL that AEM redirects you to, when you click an item in Global navigation panel
  • “Node rendering the menu link”: Revoking read access on these nodes will assure that you cannot directly access the corresponding “Browser URL in AEM”
  • “Global Navigation Panel Icon”: Revoking read access on these nodes will assure that you cannot access the Menu item in Global Navigation Panel
