Group Support Planning

July 8th, 2009

I’ve been doing some thinking on how to best implement group support into the plugin.  This would probably be a multi phase approach, to hopefully fulfill all requests.

NOTE: This is currently a work in progress and there is no estimate on when it will be complete

Per Blog Settings

LDAP Group mapping on a per blog, per role basis.  This would all for any given blog to map each individual role to a separate LDAP group.  The goal would be for these groups to automatically check for new users on logon and update accordingly.  The biggest concern here is figuring out a way for the automatic updating to happen without having a huge impact on performance.

Sitewide Settings

Group based control of the following:

  • Who can login to the blog (standard user)
  • Who can login to the blog with automatic blog creation
  • Who can’t login – deny list

Are there any other thoughts on other possible setups or anything else that others would like added?  If so – please leave a comment with your thoughts!
