Group-based permissions for importing CSV files

This module makes importing data from CSV and Excel files optional for each user, allowing it only for those users belonging to a specific group. Any other user not belonging to such group will not have the “Import” button available anywhere. The action will even be blocked internally (to prevent XMLRPC access, for example).


To allow a user to import data from CSV and Excel files, just follow this steps:

  • Go to Settings/Users/Users menu.
  • Enter the user you want to allow.
  • Within the “Access Rights” tab and “Technical Settings” group, check the option “Allow importing CSV/Excel files”.
