Project description


Make permission management easier in Plone.

Provides several new permission / role management views:

  • A sitemap like, filterable permission overview.

  • Remove user/group permission recursively.

  • Copy existing permission/role settings from one to another user.

  • Exports/imports user/group permissions/roles recursively.

    • Export only structure (folderish types).

    • Export using relative paths.

  • A better sharing view:

    • Search for users.

  • Temporary stores your selection over multiple search operations.


  • Add ftw.permissionmanager to your buildout configuration:

eggs +=
  • Install the generic import profile.

  • Configure the types that should be visible in the recursive sharing view by setting it in the registry. You can do this configuring it in portal_registry or by adding a registry.xml to your generic setup profile:

        <record name="ftw.permissionmanager.manage_types">


This package provides an Generic Setup uninstall profile.
