Libraries do not get filtered by Role Permissions
Hello. i am trying to setup image or document libraries that can only be viewed by users with a certain role. im using sitefinity 5.
no matter what i try, the list of libraries on the right always shows all libraries, even ones i should not be able to view according to the permissions i set for each library.
i have tried explicitly denying the ability to view a library on a certain role and still my user who only has this one role can view all the libraries and see what's in them. i cant edit the libraries but that's not good enough. really, i should not see them either (unless i have those permissions).
page groups seems to work just how i would expect. if i dont have view rights on a page group, then i cant see and therefore interact with the page group in the list of pages when logged in with that user. why would that same functionality not apply to libraries?
this old article was the closest i have come to finding a solution but is pretty out of date and doesn't really tell me how to fix this. http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-3-x/developing-with-sitefinity/permissions-per-image-library.aspx
any help is greatly appreciated. i would be happy if im just not doing things properly.

This is the behavior we had with pages in 4.0. Its bad enough that you have to remove the rights from all other libraries. This was later fixed for pages so I hope Telerik will see the problem here that you would probably have to deny rights in all future libraries manually.
Hey Markus. i have voted. thanks.

Any news on this. I sure would like to have images and libraries hidden in the backen from users if they have no access to them.
Thank you for contacting us.
As you may or may not know Sitefinity 6.0 is seeing a few changes with the libraries system. Mainly hierarchal changes but also some other unconfirmed fixes. Our teams are currently in the process of going through which PITS items are possible/postponed/6.0 ready and there will be more information soon as to which requests will make it into the next release.
I'm sorry at this time I cannot say whether this particular one will or will not be.
Thank you for your patience.
the Telerik team
