MDVA-29042: global category permissions unchanged

The MDVA-29042 patch fixes the issue where catalog permissions were changed to “Allow” automatically after a new product was added to the shared catalog in the Commerce Admin. This patch is available when the Quality Patches Tool (QPT) 1.0.5 is installed. Please note that the issue was fixed in Adobe Commerce 2.3.6 with the B2B extension.

Affected products and versions

Adobe Commerce (all deployment methods) 2.3.3 to 2.3.4-p2 with B2B extension

The patch might become applicable to other versions with new Quality Patches Tool releases. To check if the patch is compatible with your Adobe Commerce version, update the magento/quality-patches package to the latest version and check the compatibility on the Quality Patches Tool: Search for patches page. Use the patch ID as a search keyword to locate the patch.


Deselecting a customer group from the global category permissions in the Commerce Admin does not automatically set that customer group to “Deny” within category permissions.


  • B2B instance with a customer group defined and selected under STORES > Configuration > CATALOG > Catalog > Category Permissions for:

    • Allow Browsing Category
    • Display Product Prices
    • Allow Adding to Cart
  • Under each Category, the customer group is defined as “Allow” for:

    • Browsing Category
    • Display Product Prices
    • Add to Cart

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In the Commerce Admin, go to STORES > Configuration > CATALOG > Catalog > Category Permissions and de-select the customer group from:

    • Allow Browsing Category
    • Display Product Prices
    • Allow Adding to Cart
  2. Click the Save Config button.

  3. Wait for the indexers to run.

  4. Look at CATALOG > Categories > Category Permissions.

Expected results:

Category Permissions will be set to “Deny” for all categories for the customer group.

Actual results:

No change to any category permissions for the customer group.
