Change Plone objects ownership

Project description

Introduction as it sounds is a Plone package to change objects ownership.


While for a single content you can call the /change-owner view, there is no way in Plone to transfer ownership of all objects owned by an user to a new user. To delete a Plone member in such case is not an option.

Solution makes easy to transfer ownership from one ore more members to a new member. It also can change content metadata, like Creators field.


The addon is installed via your Plone buildout.

  • Add to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

You have to install the package from quickinstaller or setup_tool. You will get a configlet in the Plone control panel named “Change Ownership”.
