#928 - Security Groups Management on multiple levels (admin)

Closed Feature created by BoBo Verified Purchase 8 years ago

Hi Jason,

We installed SecuritySuite and configured groups and roles on multiple levels. Everything works great so far.

The only thing we are struggling with is that we need to give permissions to a specific role/user (group manager) to "edit" a group and "assign user" to it. So far this is only possible if we assign a single user to that group (but we need more than one group manager).

We set-up a role and set their permissions for Security Group Management to "Group". We expected that this role would be allowed to "edit" and "assign users" for all groups this role or its users are assigned to. But this did not work with group permissions.

When we change the Security Group Management permissions to "All" it works. But this is not what we need because this role/user should only be allowed to edit and assign users to the groups he is assigned to.

Maybe we are doing it wrong? Is there another way to give "edit" and "assign user" permissions to several "group managers" on multiple levels?

Thank you for your opinion or guidance.

Regards, Chris

    Hey Chris,

    Haven't seen this tried before, but try giving the group manager a role with Owner rights to Security Group Management. Once that is done go to the user record in Sugar and verify in the Access grid that it is set to Owner. Then log out/in as that user to see if that does the job. Make sure that the user is the "Assigned To" user on the Security Group.

    Thank you Jason for the quick response. When we assign the user to the Security Group it will work. But we need to have more than one group admin user for the same Security Group. As far as I know this is not possible (assigning more than one user to the same Security Group, 1-1 relationship, just one "Assigned To" user).

      The Security Group to User relationship is completely independent of Groups to any other record which is why you are seeing this behavior. I don't see a way to do this as is right now. Only a single non-admin user can manage a group via the Assigned To field.

      If you have a developer available to you there is always a way to do anything in Sugar. I'm not sure if it is worth the time to make that happen though.

      Sorry! -Jason
