- Drupal 8
- Switching to Drupal for intranet site in large organization
OtraganixLocker Corporation is switching to Drupal from a custom-made home-grown intranet site. They want to use D8.
The problem is, the old custom-made intranet had the following permissions for (its equivalent of) D8 nodes:
- add content
- edit own content
- edit any content
- delete own content
- delete any content
- view own content
- view any content
Moreover, the granularity of the permissions worked down to the "content-type" level on the old intranet.
Moreover, the granularity of the permissions on the old intranet permitted user-based-assignment as well as role-based-assignment.
Drupal 8 seems to be missing the
view own content and
view any content permissions that the old intranet system had.
Moreover, there seem to be a lot of ways to handle this, at least in D7.
- Is this missing functionality accounted for in D8 core and simply missing from the front-end interface, or is it also absent from D8 core?
- If it is not absent from D8 core, which specific function or functions in the D8 API account for this functionality?
