I have Views page with list of enities. The URL is /admin/group/12/members

There is a route in mymodule.routing.yml:

  path: '/admin/group/{id}/members'
    _custom_access: '\Drupal\mymodule\Controller\GroupController::access'

The Group entity has field contains group administrator email (field_admin_email)

What I need is to allow administrator to only access a view with group/{id} associated with his email. (I have only problem with views access - it seems like views override my custom access method)

Adding custom access to the Views is very easy: Just create own views access plugin by extending Drupal\views\Plugin\views\access\AccessPluginBase class.

Then implement custom access logic in access method and new rule should appear in PAGE SETTINGS > Access popup window.

  • For those who might find this helpful, I was returning TRUE on alterRouteDefinition() (from the custom AccessPluginBase plugin), access was still denied. I fixed the problem by checking some examples on the core and using: $route->setRequirement('_access', 'TRUE') ; on alterRouteDefinition().
