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">
