Let’s extend our Workbench implementation with one of the more advanced features our client has asked for. We’ll build upon the structure we’ve created with the Taxonomy module (the “News sections” vocabulary), and use that to grant users with specific roles access to content tagged with one of the “News sections” terms. In this lesson we’ll start with a little preparation work by creating new roles and users so we can test our access control to make sure it is working as expected.
