Using permissions to allow users to create products
Today we have another quick screencast answering a question in the Q&A section of drupalcommerce.org. This user, golubovicm, has asked "Edit own products permission" is not working! First off, that's not the best way to phrase a question, but it does happen that a number of people are wondering how to set up a user to create, edit, and delete their own products. So, we've created a quick screencast to walk you through how to set this up.
The permissions you need:
Create new content
Edit own content
Delete own content
... of any product display content type, and ...
Create "___" products
Edit own "___" products
View own "___" products
You might need to create a view to help users see a list of products they can edit. In the screencast, I didn't actually click "Edit" for any of the products made by the stripped down user. Just tried that and the functionality works as expected.
