Limit Access by User Groups

At a first glance, WP-Filebase only allows you to limit access by User Roles, but not User Groups added with 3rd-party plugins, such as UAM. Here’s how to setup WP-Filebase Pro and the User Access Manager Plugin to set permissions for User Groups.

In the UAM Plugin you can set “Role affiliation” for each user group. Create a User Role for every user group and set respective affiliation. In WP-Filebase you can then limit access to the created User Roles, thus the affiliated User Groups.

    I think see how this works. But by default we are limited to just a few user Roles (5) in wordpress.

    If I affiliate UAM Group 1 to the wordpress role Subscriber then every other wordpress user with the role Subscriber gains access to UAM Group 1 posts.

    So I would need add new wordpress roles – with low ‘subscriber’ like capabilities – for each UAM Group.

    In my case that makes UAM pretty much redundant.

    That is unless I am missing something.
