Custom Roles Example

The following two examples show WP Roles from third party plugins mapped to KB Groups and KB roles:

  • Map Shop Worker to Warehouse group with KB Subscriber role
    • When a user is registered with or assigned the Shop Worker role as defined by Easy Digital Downloads they will have the same access as KB Group Warehouse with KB Subscriber role. This will allow shop workers to view all Articles assigned to the Warehouse Group.

    • When a user is registered with or assigned the Shop Manager role as defined by Easy Digital Downloads they will have the same access as KB Group called Office with the KB Editor role. Shop managers will be able to View / Edit / Delete / Update all Articles assigned to the Office Group.
