Allowing only one document type when creating a new document

Hello everyone,

I’m learning Mayan for a few weeks, using the docker compose version, one step at a time.
But I’m stumped on this one : I want to create a role that can only create one type of document, but I can’t seem to do it.
I’m creating a document type and attach it to a role that can only create new documents. When I do this, the user with that role has no menu entry for creating a new document. So I give role permission to create new documents, but then he can create every single document type.

I 'm not sure how to proceed, any help is appreciated.

Hello Fred,

This image is a backup what i have from the old forum.

For your case follow the flow of example.

Create a empty USER B Without Access Control List(ACL), Create a group B without ACL, put the user B in the group B, create a Role B without permissions, link the role B with the group B, Create doctype B and add a ACL for the doctype B with the role B with permissions create doc, create doc files, view doc, view doc files… and repeat … create source B or use the default source, add ACL to source B(or default) linked with role B, and add to ACL permissions create documents, create new document files.

Sorry for my bad english.

Greetings.
