I am using a plugin which are extending Settings and have added a item is setting page. But the plugins have not register any permission itself. Is it possible to add required permissions to setting item outside the plugin rather than editing the plugin directly? I have tried to looking for the function in SettingManager but it seems that it is only able to add and remove setting items but not editing existing items.
As far as I know the plugin needs to make permissions for it's use available to October CMS. You can then manage who has what rights in the backend.
- The best option would be to request this feature (permissions) with the plugin author.
- You could hard-code the permission-part in the original plugin (and turn updates to that plugin off)
- You could write a plugin that extends the original plugin and adds permissions (https://octobercms.com/docs/plugin/extending)
