    Giving an editor user a kind of permission to have access to a data type

    I have an application which uses a List data type. The items of this list regularly should be updated so I want to give permission to a user with editor access level to edit this data type without having administrator level(having access to the tabs other than content and media). I was just wondering if there is any solution for that.

    Hi Mehrdad

    No this isn't possible

    What I tend to do in these scenarios, is create the dropdown options as 'nodes' in the Umbraco Content Tree, perhaps inside a 'Settings' section. The nodes have no templates, and can't be rendered on the front end, but you can grant access to some editors to update and create new options in this section of the Content tree.

    Then for the DataType, i'd either use a content picker, or the NuPIckers package ( which allows you to create a dropdown type control from a list of content nodes (and lots of other sourcs too)
