"Then assign the Manager to the group and assign a Group only role directly to the Manager."
So this is applying roles to the Manager direct... this makes sense now.
"However, that Manager would have the Group rights to that other because of the role directly associated to the Manager."
Ah right, now I get it.
OK thanks a lot for this, I will carry on experimenting!View Comment

Thanks for this.. I certainly do not want to bastardise it I dont think... trying to understand the best way for the setup. Not sure if you misunderstand me but I think its quite a standard setup.
So we would have a Manager of the London Group with Full rights for all Contacts in London. An Admin person who can edit them only. Then all the other users just have View only rights.
So I think this setup should be standard... we have then various other areas in addition to London with a similar setup. A Manager may be a Manager of several areas, or an Editor may be able to edit several areas.
Maybe a Manager of London could View but not edit Contacts of another area.
Does this make more sense, and does this still sound like its a bastardisation? :)
If its possible with your first recommendation above, thats fine, I just wanted to confirm if that means we need to assign records to multiple security groups (e.g we would have a Manager security group, editor group, and user group), so the record needs to be assigned to all the groups, so the users in the different groups have the different roles?

Actually it may be more than two per area, so a Full access rights, Edit, View Only. So 3 groups per area group.View Comment

So I create several roles for the different permissions, then assign the roles to a security group.
What I cant understand is if I assign a user to a security group, which role will be applied to the user, if I don't assign the role to the user. I don't want a user to be assigned a role with edit rights for example if all I want them to do is view.
About this "it will look at the groups associated to a record " - so are you saying we DO need to assign a record to multiple security groups? I can see how then we can make the connection to the users in the correct security group. But I was hoping we did not need to assign every record to multiple groups. We would have lots of groups. We have 8 at the moment, by area, so one would be London. So users in the London group can only access contacts in the London Group. So we would need to setup London Edit, London List/View? So thats 16 groups. Then London contacts (or any record) are assigned to both London Edit and London List/View? Was hoping we would just have "London" group, but then assign roles to users who can access contacts in London group.

Ahhh, that may work then. I assumed Select All would select all on the page.View Comment
But yes update could take time.
Thanks for your help, we shall try one/all the ways to do it!

Thanks, but I still think showing 35000 users on the page will be too much to handle.View Comment

Hi Jason, thanks a lot for the reply. So ideally the best way is a user already in the group to import the contacts? So they then are assigned the same groups, if Inherit from Parent is checked. If so then thats sounds fine.
It is possible an Admin may import them, so this wont work. In this case I am fine with SQL, so did wonder about running as script. I am just not familiar with the ID numbering used, but a quick look online tells me I can use UUID in the insert statement instead of ID? If this is the case then thats fine.
The Select All and Mass Assign approach I would say would not work because it would be about 35,000 users each time, and from experience we'll probably get a server 500 or something trying to load the page :)
Thanks very muchView Comment
