The permissions page at /admin/people/permissions provides very fine grain control over which actions people can do with specific content types. How can I add all paragraph types under this permission system? We have a paragraph type that is reserved only for special cases, and we don't want anyone but a certain custom editor role creating/editing them.

I've searched for a few contrib modules, but many are not updated (or just plain abandoned) with little documentation.

Simply enable the Paragraphs sub-module Paragraphs Type Permissions. It provides CRUD permissions per Paragraphs Type.


Allows users to configure permissions for individual Paragraphs types.

  • So it seems like this is what I'm looking for but this plugin is a little buggy. I'll check off permissions for a paragraph type under a given role and it will sometimes save them and sometimes not. Oct 4, 2018 at 18:14

I haven't used it personally, but there is a module that I believe should solve your problem:


Manage access and restriction to edit and view paragraphs.

This module provides a node access type api to allow restriction of access to paragraph items. Companion modules provide access rules, and grants which are verified when rendering the entities.
