How to use MSI Permissions for Magento 2

Since the release of Magento 2.3, many enhancements were added to the default Magento features and particularly to the inventory management. 

MSI Permissions for Magento 2 allows you to manage permissions of the sources for each one of the users registered in your Magento admin. 

The extension gives you the possibility to restrict access to the sources for store managers. Thanks to the MSI Permissions extension, you will be able to restrict the access to: 

  • the product pages: admin users will be able to change the quantities for the products assigned to the sources they manage.
  • the orders: store managers will have access to the invoices, the shipments, and the credit memos of the orders assigned to the sources they are in charge of and/or orders not assigned to any source yet.
  • the sources: users will only be able to manage the sources they are linked with.

MSI Permissions is also compatible with other modules from the MSI Suite giving you endless possibilities for managing your sources. 

Assign permissions

With MSI Permissions for Magento 2, you have the possibility to assign different rights to each admin user.

Note that the extension does not replace the general Magento permissions system but brings additional restrictions to it. 

Combining both systems can help you to create any possible configuration.

You can easily assign permissions to users from:
StoresInventorySources PermissionS

Permissions grid

Assign permissions to each store manager so that they can all manage the products, the stocks, the orders assigned to the source(s) they’re in charge of. 

For that, tick the appropriate boxes for each admin user.

There are different columns: 

  • All
    Store owners will be able to manage the products, stocks, and orders for all the sources.
  • View unassigned orders
    Store owners will be able to manage all the orders that haven’t been assigned to a source yet.
  • Sources
    Store owners will be able to manage the products, stocks, and orders for the selected source(s).
Allow store owners to check the stocks for their sources in a tree view using MSI Permissions with MSI Stock Management.

License and domains

A license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one single Magento installation

  • If you're using more than one Magento installation, you will have to buy a separate license for each instance.
  • if you're running several domains on a same Magento installation, you will need only one license for all of them.
Although your license doesn’t have a limited period of validity, your support period does. By purchasing an extension, you’ll be granted a 6-month support period for free. Passed this period, you will have to pay for a new one (see FAQ: Extend your Support period)

You can pre-register your live domain to your license in advance.

Thanks to this option, you'll be able to get the extension ready to use on your domain before it goes live.

To pre-register your production domain: 

  1. Go to:
    mY accountLicenses & DOwnloads
  2. Click on  next to the extension you want your domain to pre-register on.
  3. Click on the link at the bottom of the page saying:
    Do you want to pre-register your domain in order to be ready to go live?
  4. Finally, enter your domain name and click on pre-register now .
Attention, this doesn't mean your license is activated. You'll still have to activate it on your new domain when the extension is installed. 

One license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one Magento installation only. However, it is possible to extend or transfer your license in 2 cases: 

  • If you would like to add your testing environments to your license. 
    In that case, it is possible to extend your license to an unlimited number of domains for free.
    For example: mywebsite-staging.com or mywebsite-dev.com
  • If you want to transfer your license to another live domain.
    In that case, the support period for your license must still be active.

To be able to use MSI Permissions on both your production and testing environments, follow the instructions below:

  1. Download MSI Permissions.
    (see FAQ: Extensions download)
  2. Install MSI Permissions on your environment.
    (see FAQ: Extensions installation)
  3. Activate the license.
    (see FAQ: Extensions activation from the backoffice or Extensions activation from the CLI)

Also, if you are managing a large amount of domains, please contact us so that we can automatically whitelist these domains.

To know how to proceed, all steps are described in the link below: 
http://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/system/component-manager.html

Next step is to activate your license:
Extension activation

Extensions activation

Once MSI Permissions is installed, you have to activate the license. For previous versions, you can activate the license from your back-office:

    1. Go to your Magento admin panel. A message pops up at the top of the page.


      If the message doesn't appear then you must check that:

         1. The Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are well enabled.
         2. The HTML output of the Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are not disabled in:
      storesconfigurationadvanced advanced
         3. The encryption key well exists in app/etc/env.php:
      <?php
       return array(
       'backend' => array(
       'frontName' => 'admin'
       ),
       'crypt' => array(
       'key' => '1e8f3c6772b7a6a6689c3c8cefa4ccf0'
       ),
       /* ... */
       )
      ?>​
    2. Copy your activation key in:
      StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension

      You can find your activation key in 2 different places:
      In the confirmation email that you received after purchasing MSI Permissions.
      In your Wyomind account:My account Licenses & downloads
      Select MSI Permissions and click on  .

      A new page opens where you'll find your activation key (see below).


    3. In your Magento admin go to:
      StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension

      Paste the activation key in the Activation Key field and choose between the automatic (yes) or the manual (no) activation method:
      By choosing Yes, the connection to Wyomind license server will be automatic.
      By choosing No, you will have to log on to Wyomind license server yourself.

    4. Click on Save config .
    5. A message appears at the top of your admin panel. Click on that link: 
      Activate it now!
    6. Copy and paste the license code in the License code field from your admin or simply click on Activate now! 


    7. Finally, refresh your cache, log out and log in back straight after, to complete the installation.

When the extension includes other modules, repeat the steps described above for each one, using the corresponding activation keys (each module has its own activation key).

Add another domain to your license


To activate the license on another domain (test, staging...):

  1. Once the extension is installed on the new domain, copy your activation key in:
    StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
  2. After having saved the configuration, a notification appears. Click on Add this domain to my license.

  3. A transfer request will then be sent to our team within an hour.
    Once the request is taken care of, you will receive a confirmation email.
    If your transfer request is accepted, you can use MSI Permissions on both environments at the same time.

Note that the order in which you activate your license on your domains does not matter. You can start with your staging/dev/local environment or with your live domain, the process will be the same.

Also, if you have loads of staging domains, or if you are an agency managing load of domains for your customers, please contact us so that we can automatically whitelist these domains.

Once MSI Permissions is installed, you have to activate the license.

For this, you can use the below command line (change the Activation key with the corresponding value):

bin/magento wyomind:license:activate Wyomind_MsiPermissions <YOUR_ACTIVATION_KEY>

To retrieve the list of all the available modules as well as the licenses status, please use:

bin/magento wyomind:license:status

 

 Among the different status, you can find: 

  • registered = your license is registered
  • pending = you need to run the activation command line
  • invalidated = the license has been invalidated due to a wrong activation key or a license infringement

 

To activate several licenses at the same time, use:

bin/magento wyomind:license:activate \
Wyomind_Extension1,Wyomind_Extension2 \
ACTIVATION_KEY_1,ACTIVATION_KEY_2

or:

bin/magento wyomind:license:activate \
Extension1,Extension2 \
ACTIVATION_KEY_1,ACTIVATION_KEY_2
