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 /ownership_form 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.


See docs/INSTALL.txt for a buildout configuration.

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