What permissions are needed to change the primary user group of a user?  I remember seeing something about it, but cannot remember.

And I really don't want to grant this person full admin rights to the site... He already brought the site down once.........

For the non-admin I want to be able to do that, it's not there.  Must be a global permissions setting I am missing

Why don't you try making him a SuperMod (along with the others, so that face is saved, explaining you only want ONE Admin - yourself), allow SuperMods to inherit Admin privileges (they already have a whole bunch of them, anyway), then remove the ones you don't want him to have in the Permissions Tree Editor?

On the face of it he will see that he is the equivalent of all the other SuperMods, but you will have restricted some of his privileges without him knowing it!

Or am I not seeing this the way you want …?

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Ya, just want him to help manage the different User Groups, but not have full admin anywhere.

SuperMod doesn't seem to give the Primary User Group modification power

It's a big privilege, "Assume the identity/access of any other member". This is because this is essentially what it implies – if you can change usergroups, you can change privileges, and escalate your access via various methods.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
