Plone PAS plugin to create virtual groups based on member properties.

The main use case are organisations that have an existing LDAP infrastructure that organises groups through member properties instead of LDAP groups.

If you have a vanilla Plone site without LDAP, you most likely do not need this plugin.



Add pas.plugins.memberpropertytogroup to the Plone installation using pip:

pip install pas.plugins.memberpropertytogroup

or add it as a dependency on your package's

    install_requires = [

Start Plone and activate the plugin in the addons control-panel.

Source Code and Contributions

If you want to help with the development (improvement, update, bug-fixing, ...) of pas.plugins.memberpropertytogroup this is a great idea!

We appreciate any contribution and if a release is needed to be done on PyPI, please just contact one of us.


You need a working python environment (system, virtualenv, pyenv, etc) version 3.7 or superior.

Then install the dependencies and a development instance using:

make build

To run tests for this package:

make test

By default we use the latest Plone version in the 6.x series.
