This project is not covered by Drupal’s security advisory policy.


This module only does something if one or more modules are providing node access control. In such a case this module:

  • Allows you to select when the node access table is purged (beginning or during). Very helpful when you have many records and you don't want to block access to your users for the duration of the rebuild.
  • Adds the ability to target nodes by type, nid, nid range for selective permissions rebuilding.
  • Adds an elapsed time and estimate time to complete to the node access permissions rebuild process.

If you have a dependency on this module and you need a Drupal 8 version, please let me know by commenting on (or creating) the issue called “Drupal 8 Port”. I will prioritize those modules that have the most votes for Drupal 8 first over others.
