I am using magento 1.7 community edition is there is any way to restrict user's in publishing products in some specific categories.

  • Not with Magento as it ships out of the box.

As @Roscius said, not out of the box. However Aitoc offers an extension that does add this feature and some other nice ones, It's called Advanced Permissions.

In the screenshot below you can see it offers access restricted by store and by category. I haven't used the latest versions but older ones had pretty decent code. enter image description here

  • I'f afraid you'll have to build it yourself but if you do find it please share! Sep 7, 2013 at 17:49

You can use this extension http://ecommerce.aheadworks.com/magento-extensions/catalog-permissions.html
This will restrict customers of particular customer groups to see particular categories.
