    umbraco 7.12 adding user to custom section

    in umbraco 7.12 the User section has had a little update and you no longer get tick boxes to allow you to choose which sections you want a user to have access to. how would you go about giving a user permission to access a custom section in this new layout?

    i also notice that UserService.AddSectionToAllUsers("sectionAlias") is no longer part of the API.

    is there any documentation on custom sections in light of these new changes?

    Thanks

    Hi Simon,

    I am not sure if there is any documentation updates for this - but with the advent of the user groups, you add the section to the AllowedSections list on a group - the below will add a custom section to the admin group (post v7.7):

       private void AddSectionSevenSeven(string alias)
            {
                var adminGroup = _userService.GetUserGroupByAlias("admin");
                if (adminGroup != null)
                {
                    if (!adminGroup.AllowedSections.Contains(alias))
                    {
                        adminGroup.AddAllowedSection(alias);
                        _userService.Save(adminGroup);
                    }
                }
            }
