Hierarchical group permissions / access to categories & subcategories

Unsolved General Discussion
  • Does NodeBB offer hierarchical permissions that are inherited by subcategories?

    My goal.. create multiple 'boards' as top-level categories, but only have certain people/groups have visibility to the top-level categories, but then I expect them all to be able to see the subcategories if granted access to the top-level categories. I also might want to have subgroups at levels of the tree that only see that subcategory and its children.


  • There are not hierarchical permissions in NodeBB. If you would like to see hierarchical permissions, you could open an issue on our Github page and request such a feature.

    I do believe we have a way of copying permissions between groups, so that could help you out in doing what you want.
