Why Taxonomies don’t have Permissions?

  • I’ve been looking into ACF’s Post Types and Taxonomies and comparing all their available options with code that I’ve writing so far, in order to see if the options cover everything and they almost do.

    I’ve noticed one omission in the Advanced Configuration of Taxonomies. Although Post Types have the following: General, Labels, Visibility, URLs, Permissions, REST API

    Taxonomies are missing Permissions which would be the equivalent of passing an array of capabilities to the register_taxonomy() function. For example:

    'capabilities' => [
    'manage_terms' => 'manage_my_cpt_mytax',
    'edit_terms' => 'edit_my_cpt_mytax',
    'delete_terms' => 'delete_my_cpt_mytax',
    'assign_terms' => 'assign_my_cpt_mytax',

    Any plans to add it?
