My main purpose is creating a set of users with specific roles.
I'm running GeoServer 2.13.
On the first step I wanted to create a role with access to one workspace - "UNIVERSITY"
So I've created:
- A new user "test_student" in Default XML user/group service.
- A new role "STUDENT" without parents.
- A rule for the "STUDENT" role with a permission to write all layers and groups in workspace "UNIVERSITY".
Then I logged in the GeoServer account under the new user (test_student) and got nothing:
But I expected to get all layers in specified workspace. By the way when I set "ADMIN" as a parent for my role "STUDENT" I got all data without any restrictions.
How to solve this problem?
