    Hide nodes that you can't edit


    We have the following use-case:

    Let's say we have 3 subfolders in our Content-section.

    Subfolder A
    Subfolder B
    Subfolder C

    We have users in Umbraco that should be limited. They shouldn't be able to access Subfolder C, but they should be able to access all nodes of Subfolder A and Subfolder B.
    We can do this through "User Permissions" in the User section.

    BUT, we need a way to completely hide Subfolder C in case you don't have the rights for it. They shouldn't be able to see Subfolder C. Is there a way to hide the nodes you're not entitled to edit?

    We can't use the setting "Start Node in Content", because they should be able to access Subfolder A AND Subfolder B.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    If all permissions are taken off folder c then when user logs in they should not see folder c.

    Hello Ismail.

    Thanks for your answer.

    But how do we remove all permissions? If we do it through "User Permissions", they still see the folders, but can't do anything with it. They'll only have create/delete on Folder A and Folder B, but will see all other folders.

    Just to be clear: in "User Permissions", we only put a check in front of the folders they CAN see, namely Folder A and folder B.

    Are we doing something wrong?
