The Simple Access module provides an easy way to make nodes accessible
by only a group (or groups) of users. It defaults to only managing
access of view-ability, so that administrators can simply make some
nodes "private". However, the module can also manage edit-ability and
delete-ability of nodes as well, allowing for nodes that are editable
by anyone in a certain role.

This is a port from the Drupal module of the same name.


This is an initial port of the module ready for testing.



  • Configuration settings are at admin/config/content/simple_access.
    From there you define the name and the roles of one or more
    'access groups'.

  • Each content type has a new setting 'Access' which, if used
    will restrict access to that content type.
