[Documentation] repair permissions feature request

edited April 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I would like to request a "repair permissions" button. When setting up my forums from phpbb I did not have my default roles set so I had a lot of users created without a role. There doesn't seem to be any way to locate all users with a blank role or edit multiple users at once.

My idea is that you could click this button and then assign a role to any user that has no role defined or even change all users of one role to another.

    Good idea. In the meantime try the following SQL:

    insert ignore GDN_UserRole (UserID, RoleID)
    select u.UserID, XXX
    from GDN_User u
    left join GDN_UserRole ur
      on u.UserID = ur.UserID
    where ur.UserID is null;
    

    Replace XXX with the RoleID of the role you want to use.

  • I tried this code but it doesn't work for me.

    "Doesn't work" doesn't help somebody solve your problem - you need to give a wee bit more of an explanation.

    remove the ignore? and probably 8 is the roleid you want for members

    Do you see any nulls in your UserRole table?

    if yes, after you run the code

    do you still see nulls?

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
