User roles

User roles

This module was written to extend the standard functionality regarding users and groups management. It helps creating well-defined user roles and associating them to users.

It can become very hard to maintain a large number of user profiles over time, juggling with many technical groups. For this purpose, this module will help you to:

  • define functional roles by aggregating low-level groups,
  • set user accounts with the predefined roles (roles are cumulative),
  • update groups of all relevant user accounts (all at once),
  • ensure that user accounts will have the groups defined in their roles (nothing more, nothing less). In other words, you can not set groups manually on a user as long as there is roles configured on it,
  • activate/deactivate roles depending on the date (useful to plan holidays, etc)
  • get a quick overview of roles and the related user accounts.

That way you make clear the different responsabilities within a company, and are able to add and update user accounts in a scalable and reliable way.

Configuration

To configure this module, you need to go to Configuration / Users / Roles, and create a new role. From there, you can add groups to compose your role, and then associate users to it.

You can also define default roles for a new user by editing the user called “Default User”.
