(CiviCRM 4.6.20, Drupal 7.50)

I have had zero luck trying to get this functionality to work. Here is the setup:

  • Created a regular (not smart, didn't want to add that level of potential caching complication yet) group of contacts (let's call it Test Group) to which a specific user should have access.
  • Created a group for access control, and added that user to the group.
  • Created an ACL role and linked it to the group for access control.
  • Created an ACL for editing the Test Group of contacts for the ACL role created in the previous step.
  • Logged in as the specific user and can only see the user's own contact record, not any others.
  • I have the View All Contacts and Edit All Contacts Drupal permissions turned off for this user's Drupal role, and I even tried turning off the view/edit own contacts Drupal permissions, all to no avail.

There must be a step I'm missing but I've reviewed a lot of documentation and I just don't see where I'm going astray. If anyone has used this successfully, can you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance, Lesley

  • Are either of your groups child groups of another group? I had that problem - making them independent groups solved the problem. – Jamie Sep 16 '16 at 18:02
  • Unfortunately these are not child groups - thanks for your response and sorry for the delay in responding on my end. :-) – Lesley Carter - BackOffice Sep 27 '16 at 20:28
