I have a big problem, which I've just noticed. If Seller A uploads a file to sell in their shop as a downloadable product, Seller B can log in and simply use this file by clicking on the tab “Media Library” and setting the price to zero. Is there a way to ensure that users cannot have access to other users' files?
A suggestion would be to not give access to the tab “Media Library” but this has limited benefits. It would be much better if all users had their own uploads directory that other users (except the admin) can access.November 2, 2014 at 3:39 am #29556

I'm just installing Dokan. Does this also mean they have access to each others images?November 2, 2014 at 4:37 am #29559
It certainly looks that way right nowNovember 2, 2014 at 5:20 pm #29589

This seems like a serious issue as you do not want a s shared media library between different Vendors.
Not from a privacy perspective but this also causes issues if you have 100 Vendors with 2000 products each.
Will there be a fix for this weDevs?November 2, 2014 at 6:03 pm #29597
If I don't check “Disable sellers and customers from accessing wp-admin area”, my sellers can see:
All my posts
All my comments
All my products (all products in WooCommerce from all sellers)
All other custom posts types
The only thing I can see is restricted to the sellers own uploaded elements, is the media gallery.
Sellers have full access to everything in the backend, can make new posts, new elements in slideshows, add team members to my company… etc.November 2, 2014 at 6:03 pm #29598
Perhaps it is just for Shop Manager roles as normal sellers don't seem to have the same issue. However, it is equally important for Shop Managers to not see other users' media and files.November 2, 2014 at 6:10 pm #29600
I am talking about the “seller” role.November 2, 2014 at 6:15 pm #29603
Sorry, Tor B, I think we replied at the same time so didn't see your post. Sorry for any confusion. Yes, I have that option ticked. The problem is when you add a file (for a downloadable product) you can see all other uploads from all other users.November 4, 2014 at 3:59 am #29671
Any ideas on this? I'd really like to be able to have Shop Managers.November 9, 2014 at 6:56 pm #30054

We have tested the media library several times with the seller role.
Please be double sure that you have logged in with a user that is “seller” not admin.
Only admin can see all the uploaded images.November 10, 2014 at 2:46 am #30076
Thank you for the reply. We figured out the seller problem. It's the Shop Manager that can see all uploads.November 10, 2014 at 2:39 pm #30111
As stated above, all my sellers can see and do “everything” in the backend. Do you have any overview of which capabilities the “seller” role should have? In some way or another, my sellers have to much capabilities.November 10, 2014 at 4:05 pm #30116

Hello Tor B,
Please make sure that you have marked the seller role as seller. If you not, then please navigate to User->Edit->User Role and select as seller. Kindly check this out and let me know.
Thank you 🙂
