Each user within his/her group has a specific KB Role (KB Subscriber, KB Author, KB Editor, or KB Manager). If you have Custom Roles add-on then you can also map custom WP Roles to KB Groups and Roles.
Custom Roles add-on lets you map custom WP Roles to KB Roles, and together with KB Groups add-on you can map custom WP Roles to KB Groups and Roles.

- You have KB Content that is exported from WordPress.
