How to use groups field in user menu?

posts: 34

I am trying to limit a menu item for a certain wiki page to people in just one group. I thought that maybe the group field in the menu editor would be for doing that. When I put anything in that field, the menu item never shows up. What would go in this field?

I am on version 1.8.2 right now.

Does anyone know if this field is used by the menu or if there is another way to limit menu choices to the users group?

It works for me in 1.8.4 (BRANCH-1-8)

Make sure the group name is spelt exactly the name (upper/lowercase)

Also be sure to empty the ./modules/cache/ directory, as the old menu version might still be loading instead of the updated version. In my case, the menu is linking to a tracker, and I put "tiki_p_view_trackers" in the permissions field.
