Ticketing app permission check

I have read in several topics that there is no user permission restrictions when someone is using the (Android) ticketing app. Do you have any news about it (current solution, futures plans, costs, workarounds)? I was interested in defining regional managers which could scan only their events.

Seems to be solved according to your recent change log:

Actually, I guess it isn’t fixed, due to the fact that the Android application uses Espresso Services API and not JSON API. What next?

Any opinion on the subject? Thank you.

Hi Cristi,

While it will not separate out events per user account, you can add a check in the older API’s events.php file starting right after line 51 like this:

//Get the role for this user
$caps = get_user_meta($userid, 'wp_capabilities', true);
$roles = array_keys((array)$caps);
//Set this to whatever role is needed to scan tickets
if ($roles[0] == 'administrator'){ //checks for admin level
	die("<?xml version='1.0'?><events><error>4</error><desc>Invalid User Role</desc></events>");
