Support » Plugin: Export any WordPress data to XML/CSV » Change plugin capability role

  • Resolved benjaminloeffel


    I cannot find a way on how to enable only this plugin for other user roles, such as “Shop Manager” or “Editor”.

    Why wouldn’t other user roles be able to export data?

    Hi @benjaminloeffel,

    WP All Export is only available to admin accounts because when running an export users have the ability to execute any PHP code that they want. So if you let a non-admin run an export, they can just write some code to make themselves an admin.

    We’re working on a way around this, where you’ll be able to create custom pages to run exports that have already been configured.

    What specifically are you trying to do?

    Thanks for the clarification, I will be making use of a workaround until this update gets released.

    My goal is to add the capability to use the export plugin from a specific user role, which will then allow this role to export a custom post type including all their corresponding ACF fields.

    I found a workaround to enable access to the plugin with a specific role but I was forced to customize the core functionality of the WP All Export plugin, which isn’t the correct way this should be handled, as it will no longer allow me to update the plugin without overriding my code.

    Does the user need to be able to customize the export at all? Or would it be ok for them to simply run a pre-configured export?

    I’m having a similar issue. They won’t need to customise the export at all. It would be fine to just be able to run a pre-configured report. We’ve bought the pro edition. Could you help? Thank you.

    Hi – any movement on this? I own the pro version too. Just hoping to create a re-run-able report for Shop Managers to run – maybe they change the date range?

    I am having a similar issue and don’t want to modify the core functionality of the plugin. I have the pro version of the plugin.

    The only thing I want my editor level users to be able to do is upload a new file and run the import. I don’t want them to be able to make modifications to the import.

    Thank you.



    I am also interested in this functionality. I just need a way for my Shop Manager to run a pre-configured report.

    Has this been resolved? I also need Shop Managers to run preconfigured exports. Thanks!

    Hi there!

    I’ve same problem, but I written a code with some CSS hacks and custom hook restrictions, which solve this problem.
