I created a user role who can only create and edit a certain content type, this works as it should.

When they log in however, they can click the content box in the admin bar to see all content. I want them to be able to click there and get all the content that they have the permission to create, but other content types should not appear.

I can't find any setting for this is the user role and permissions setting, but perhaps I'm mistaking? How can I fix this?

You should use Content Access module

This module allows you to manage permissions for content types by role and author. It allows you to specifiy custom view, edit and delete permissions for each content type. Optionally you can enable per content access settings, so you can customize the access for each content node.

  • the content access module is not stable which means it is not an idea solution.

You can just create a custom view and filter it to the desired content. This also allows you to completely customize which options they have available to them.

  • It can be very good if you need a very customized output, but I guess it doesn't really worth the time, best is just to go with Content Access module.
