  • collective.dms.basecontent (LocalRolesToPrincipals field) : field presenting a list of services for which a local role can be given


First, create a directory in your site (object from This directory will contain all the informations related to your contacts.

You can then add your organization in it (with a specific id equal to ‘plonegroup-organization’). An organization can contain organizations (such as services, divisions or department).

In the configuration panel, you have to :

  • select some services of your organization to be used in LocalRolesToPrincipals field
  • define some function labels that will be used in each selected organization

When submitting, for each organization - function combination, a plone group will be created with the id “organization-uid”_”function-id” and name “organizations-name” (“function-name”).

The generated plone groups will be used in LocalRolesToPrincipals field, where some local roles can be given to some function for each selected service.


  • Add to your eggs.
  • Re-run buildout.
  • Install the product in your plone site.
