Allow access to users administration

by Nuno Nogueira   Last Updated July 03, 2017 11:10 AM

I created a user group with access to the users component. In Global Config, all access options are marked to "Allow":

However, in admin, this menu item does not show up:

Other components are working OK, so is there anything special to do with this component?

I can not reproduce this on a Joomla! 3.7.2.

The steps below are what I did. Can you follow them and report back if this works for you?

  1. Created the Custom User-group, it is a child of the Public - I called it "users-managers".

  2. Gave full Permissions = set everything to Allowed for the new user-group, through the Options of the users component.

  3. Gave Special Viewing Access Levels for the new group.

  4. Gave only Administrator Login permissions from the Global Configuration for the new Group.

  5. Create a new user and assign him to the new group (only to that group) - use another browser to login and test. This user should only see the following menu items on the admin menu:

System(->Control Panel only) | Users (and all children items) | Help (if it's enabled)

If the above won't produce the expected result - then see if there is any 3rd party ACL extension installed and also if there is any custom admin menu.
