Sort Userlist "by Role"

phreakphreak Vanilla*APP (White Label) & Vanilla*Skins Shop MVP

Hi all,

I'm still wondering how it is possible to sort user by role under 2.0.X and 2.1.X. I'm working with Vanilla for quite some time and maybe i've forgotten it more than once or there is simply not a function that allows me to give me a list of users with a certain role in the dashboard.

Could anyone help me for a 2nd or do we really have a missing function that is important for admins and should be implemented "Sort by Role".

Thanx, phreak

  • how do you propose sorting users with 1 , 2 and 3 roles.

    You just search for the role in the user dashboard. Clicking on the role name in the userlist will also do this.

    Search first

    @peregrine: A select menue for sorting roles?

    @hgtonight: Ahja, thanx that works god. But with thousends of users and a lot of roles (probably some who have a complex naming) this way is quite uncomfortable.

    It work's, but some improvement won't be bad i guess. And if it's just a clickable role name or a "list users with this role" in the roles backend.

  • It would be nice to be able to search for users with no role to fix problems.

    How would you search for it? As in, what would you want the workflow to be?

    I'd like to see it worked into the import workflow, as that is where you are most likely to find that sort of problem.

    a simple reality check...

    SELECT u.UserID FROM GDN_User as u left join GDN_UserRole as r on r.UserID = u.UserID where r.UserID is Null

    ignore deleted user...

    SELECT u.UserID, u.Name FROM GDN_User as u left join  GDN_UserRole as r  on r.UserID = u.UserID where r.UserID is Null AND u.Name  <> "[Deleted User]"

    In the Dashboard. :smile: For example: searching for "[norole]" would all users with no role.

    In a general 2.1.x setup only the System user should not have a role assigned to it.

    check for users that do not have a role assigned. if anyone wants I'll add it to addons section.

    e.g. in this screenshot "peregrine was a user buy had no role assigned" showing potential problem.

    here is a screen shot when peregrine was assigned a role.

    amazing, I didn't know it was possibile :wink: to make an angry moose happy.

    I guess "meese" can be:

    • angry and happy,
    • angry and sad,
    • and angry, happy and sad.
