Sorry if this has been addressed, I couldn’t find anything in my notes.
I’m trying to use this plugin again. I set up an additional Role. I provide that role with certain capabilities. But what I really want to do is allow for SELECTED USERS to have specific capabilities that are in the Role.
For example, User A may have role 123, and Role 123 may have capabilities X, Y and Z by default, but I want User A to ONLY have capability Y (not X or Z). How do I do this?
Is there a better way? Maybe not use the Role part of it and ONLY have the capability added to the Users existing role – ONLY for that User?
Thanks for your help.
Usually this is handled using secondary roles. For example, Role A has capabilities A & B and has ten users in it. If you want five of those users to have capability C, you can create Role B with capability C and assign it as secondary role to those five users. So only those five users will have capability A, B and C.
Let me know whether this will fit your use case.
