Welcome to this Coding with the Hub series!

In this series we'll be recording videos to solve Community requests that requires coding abilities.

We are covering in this blog post a real question from Alfresco Hub related with custom permissions for Tags creation.

User requirement is that Tags can only be created or modified by a specific group of Alfresco users, while default behaviour in ACS is that every user can create, update and remove Tags in the platform.

We've selected an approach that limits the ability to create new Tags in Repository layer, controlling the permissions for the TaggingService bean. So we are developing an Alfresco Repository addon.

Since the final project is available in GitHub, we're developing everything from scratch to describe the development process associated with the feature.

Following resources has been used in the recording:
