    Hi Saurabh,

    you can modify access rights according to your needs with the following impex:

     $START_USERRIGHTS
     Type;UID;MemberOfGroups;Password;Target;read;change;create;delete;change_perm
     UserGroup;YOURGROUP;
     ;;;;CMSParagraphComponent;+;+;+;+;-
     ;;;;CMSParagraphComponent.content;+;+;;;
     $END_USERRIGHTS
    
    

    Explanation:

    "$START_USERRIGHTS" and "$END_USERRIGHTS" are kind of "magic macros" which are exsistent out of box.

    The first data line "UserGroup;YOURGROUP;" 'tells' the script that the following lines belong to the user group with uid "YOURGROUP".

    The line ";;;;CMSParagraphComponent;+;+;+;+;-" then grants read, change, create and delete permission for the type "CMSParagraphComponent" to the group.

    The line ";;;;CMSParagraphComponent.content;+;-;;;" grants read permission and restricts change of the attribute "content". Rights for "create", "delete" and "change_perm" are inherited in this line.

    With this snippet you should be able to:

    1. Deny access to specific types, attributes for specific usergroups

    2. Grant e.g. change permission to specific types and attributes for particular groups.

    hope this helps.
