Archetypes Role Field

Project Description

An Archetypes field that manages local roles. It can be used to assign
specific local roles through the edit form.


An example field definition

... RoleField(
... 'responsible,
... role = 'Owner',
... widget = SelectionWidget(
... label = 'Responsible',
... ),
... ),

The available parameters are:

- 'role': the managed role that will be assigned to users;

- 'target_expression': An expression returning the target object
where local roles should be assigned. If None (default), context
will be used as target.

- 'allow_protected_roles': Allow the user to change protected
roles for himself. Default is False.

- 'protected_roles': Roles that a user shouldn't be able to
change for himself, if 'allow_protected_roles' is True.
Default is ('Manager', 'Owner').

- 'filter_groups': Filter users/groups by group. If None, no
filter is made. Only used if vocabulary is None and so the
default vocabulary is used.

- 'principals': Possible values are 'users' (default), 'groups'
and 'all'. Only used if 'vocabulary' is None and so the default
vocabulary is used.
