See the Grav Admin FAQ, to learn how to manage users
By default, Grav does not provide any group. You need to define them.
Groups are defined in the user/config/groups.yaml file. If that file does not exist yet, create it.
Here’s an example of a user groups definition:
registered: icon: users readableName: 'Registered Users' description: 'The group of registered users' access: site: login: true paid: readableName: 'Paid Members' description: 'The group of paid members' icon: money access: site: login: true paid: true administrators: groupname: administrators readableName: Administrators description: 'The group of administrators' icon: child access: admin: login: true site: login: true
Here we define 3 groups.
Every user can be assigned to a group.
groups: - paid
to a user’s yaml file under
You can add multiple groups:
groups: - administrators - another-group
You can also edit a user’s group information through the Admin Plugin.
Users assigned to a group inherit the group permissions. You can for example define a group that has permission
site.paid by adding:
access: site: paid: true
to the group definition in
When a user is assigned to that group, it will inherit the site.paid: true permission.
When a user belongs to multiple groups, it's enough that a group provides a permission, and it will be added to the user's permissions.
You can fine-tune the permissions on a user level too, as usual. With groups, you can define a global permission and deny it on a user level, by adding
access: site: paid: false
to a user’s yaml file.
