WP-Admin: Allow Limited Admin Access to Different User Roles

In this example, the wordpress user role of "contributor" or WooCommerce role of "shop_manager" is enabled to access limited Autoship Cloud submenu pages ('autoship_cloud_subpage_security' filter) or all submenu pages ('autoship_cloud_main_page_security' filter).

Both filters can be found in the autoship_create_menu() function.

Important: Always test customizations to your site on a staging environment before making changes to your live / production site.
