Joget DX 8 Stable Released
The stable release for Joget DX 8 is now available, with a focus on UX and Governance.
The UI Manage Permission Menu allows you to configure category permissions for user-defined groups at run-time.
This feature eliminates the need for app designers to go into the UI builder to manually set the permission for every menu category.
The easiest way to see how the Manage Permission menu works is to download the attached demo app, import, publish and run the app in your Joget platform:
2. The Configure button will present you with the following permission options (Figure 2) :
3. In UI Builder, the Manage Permission menu property is shown in Figure 3 (More details are provided below).
4. Each menu category permission property (Figure 4) is tagged as "Permission Type = Controlled By Manage Permission Menu" and given a "Permission Key" name. You then map the respective "Permission Key" names into the "Manage Permission > Permissions" grid (Figure 3).

|Label||Menu label. Mandatory field.|

Value defined here must be unique to the rest of the UI Menus as the first matching name will be called upon.
|Page Title||Page title on Permission Menu page. You can use HTML tags, for example <b></b> to bold the title.|
|Enable Refined Controls (Requires Admin User Role)?|
Allows administrators to implement intricate user permission configurations per group.
Using LDAP / External Directory Manager?
If you are using external directory manager such as the LDAP Directory Manager, you must enable this option to use this Manage Permission menu.
Once this feature is enabled, only users with administrative access can manage the permission.
As opposed to Figure 2, when configuring permission, you will be brought to the following screen for finer permission control.
|Custom Header||Custom Header in HTML to show.|
|Custom Footer||Custom Footer in HTML to show.|
Caching options are (Figure 7):
|Duration (s)||Duration in seconds to cache content, defaults to 20 seconds if applicable.|

How to use this permission plugin in a UI category
In the UI category that you wish to manage its permission via this plugin, edit the category's permission as shown in figure 4. After setting up the Permission Menu, remember to configure all the respective UI categories. Note that, multiple categories can use the same permission key. Setting up as such will grant multiple categories to a permission group.
