Assumption

The customer group has already been created. Click Managing customer groups in Aphix Management Interface to find out how to create a customer group.

  1. Click the Status tab in the Pages editor. The status screen allows you to set the page's status and permissions.

  2. Check the box beside the customer group you wish to grant view permission.

  3. Click Save. This saves the permissions, and restricts the page to the customer groups you have selected.

Key points

  •  Once you have configured Customer Group permissions, child pages and blocks are only displayed if the logged-in user belongs to a Customer Group that has permission to view that page or block.

  • As an Administrator, you always have access to all pages and blocks, regardless of how Customer Groups are configured.  A message, "Locked page you can view as an admin" is displayed on any page you may not have access to. Log in as Admin and you can see the restricted page.

Remember to click Save once you make changes to any of these settings. The changes are made immediately to your WebShop.
