Fixed in commit: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/commit/1149129c6f7efe55d3f8e2401304bd56064fb3cf

Checks for figuring out whether access was allowed to the dashboards, was not converted to the new user groups (was using user types before).

I have remade these checks as I think they should be done:

  • If no kind of grant rules are defined - allow until deny.
  • If any kind of grant rules are defined - disallow until at least one grants access.
  • Deny will overrule all grant rules.

In other words: if you don't define access rules in the dashboard.config - you will be allowed to see the dashboard tabs - which is how I believe it was before? .. if you do define rules - anything other than matches will be denied. Anything matching deny-rules will overrule all.

Please take a look at the code and confirm that this is how it should work.
