iw.memberreplace 1.0.0-RC1

Replace a Plone member by another one (ownership, creators, sharings and mutable groups).

By Ingeniweb

A missing feature from the members control panel. A contributor of your Plone site is replaced by someone else. This happens sometimes. If your site has thousands of items, dozens of contributors and groups, this utility will save your managers hours of digging in your site and changing settings on hundreds of content items.

Features and options:

  • Replace member in ownership
  • Replace member in DC Creators
  • Replace member in sharings
  • Replace member in groups
  • Remove former member
  • Dry run
  • Logging all this

Requirements

Plone 3.x

Installation

We assume that you created your Zope instance with paster create -t plone3_buildout <your-instance> or something similar. And of course you're supposed to know how to set up a Plone site using zc.buildout.

With zc.buildout

Recommended practice for integration or production instances.

Open buildout.cfg with your favorite text editor and change it like indicated below:

[instance]
...
eggs =
  ...
  iw.memberreplace
  ...
zcml =
  ...
  iw.memberreplace

Run your buildout, you're done.

From Subversion repository

Recommended practice for developers.

Install as indicated in With zc.buildout above.

Checkout your preferred trunk/branch of iw.memberreplace in $BUILDOUT/src (You should have $BUILDOUT/src/iw.memberreplace/... after this). See the Project home pages section for the repository URL.

Then:

$ cd $BUILDOUT/src/iw.memberreplace
$ python setup.py develop

Open buildout.cfg with your favorite text editor and change it like indicated below:

[buildout]
...
develop =
  src/iw.memberreplace

Run your buildout, you're done. Your Subversion working copy of iw.memberreplace should take over the egg.

Upgrades

Visit in ZMI the portal_setup object of your site, click Upgrades and select iw.memberreplace:default. All is obvious from there.

Support

You may ask for further support (training, commercial support, ...) at Ingeniweb support if you don't find answers to your questions in the tracker.

Further documentation

See the other files in docs/. In addition this component may have other more specific README.txt files in its directory tree.

More technical documentation may be found in thisdir/iw/memberreplace/tests/README.txt.
