I set up three users. To make things easier, let's take the following names: X, Y, Z. Additionally, there are subgroups in the Registered group, let's call them X_group, Y_group and Z_group. User X has the rights of the Registered group and X_group.

I would like to grant permissions for an article, for example: number 1 for user X and auto exclude for Y and Z.

Also, in the next article, I would like to make an article possible for two groups to access. I searched on the internet but couldn't find an answer to my question.

Please note the difference between "user groups" and "access levels".

Access Levels determine which users have access to certain views and features. Said levels are assigned to usergroups. Creating a child user group will inherit the access levels of the parent.

The dropdown you see on the Articles page is a list of access levels, not usergroups, so this is what you'll need to create.
