Plone content rule to create a group based on a content

Overview

Content Rules: User group actions (sc.contentrules.group) package provides content rule actions to create or remove an user group.

This package is tested with Travis CI:

Use case

A college with descentralized content management and groups dedicated to research. Each group should manage its own content.

In their portal they want to host areas for each research group they sponsor. All those areas will be under the folder /research/. A research group called “Environmental Studies” will have an area at /research/environmental-studies.

Every time a new research group is added under /research/ they need to create at least two user groups:

  • Editors: Group of users responsible for publishing content and managing this area.
  • Members: Group of users with access to this area.

Also, every time a research group is removed from /research/ they want to remove existing user groups related to it.

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add sc.contentrules.group to the list of eggs to install

    [buildout]
    ...
