Hiding private event


Is it possible to hide an event from a category for witch the user doesn’t have right ?

This is to avoid the displaying of all event from a category without having to build a big category trees and managing rights for hundred users…

For these event, people are invited by email and do not need to go to the main menu of indico. The main menu is more for organisers and admin.


Unfortunately, there is no way to filter protected events on the category display page. However, this should be quite easy to implement if you manage your own instance of Indico.

The reason why we do not hide events you can’t access is that it could be somewhat expensive to check the user’s access for every single event that’d be displayed.

The easiest option would be creating a protected category - that way unauthorized users cannot see the event listing at all, but still use a direct link to any event which they can access.
