Custom site role allowing users to read only specific documents inside the site

Hello.

 

We have some cases where users would like to be able to add an user as a member of a site, but this user should not be able to see all the documents by default, like the Consumer role.

The idea is to let such user to see only the "published" ones (defined by a property value or an aspect).

 

So, basically, a special Consumer role.

 

What I was considering, and this is where I am not sure if it is the best way to achieve it, is to create a new role called PublishedContentConsumer, and the read permission would be granted to the user only if the content has the aspect or the property set to a specific value.

Based on that, I would like to know if a Dynamic Authority would be the right way to implement this, or if I should consider another approach.

 

Some links I was reading:

  2. Alfresco - Simple Dynamic Authority · GitHub 

 

Please, let me know what you think.

Any idea is welcome.
