    So in this lesson, we're going to work with Workbench Access.

Setting Up Access Control with Workbench Access


As you’ve probably guessed by now, we’ll create an access control mechanism that grants users with the “national editor” role editorial access to content tagged with the term “national news.” Users that have the role “cultural editor” will eventually get editorial access to content that has the term “culture” attached. In this lesson we'll limit our users to the correct section by configuring Workbench Access, setting the correct permissions, and then assigning our content to sections. This will get everything in place to finish up our access control.
