Many clients plan user roles on their sites as a 1:1 representation of job titles in their company. This creates far too many roles on your site, making management a nightmare. Having an unmanageable amount of roles with different permissions could potentially cause a security risk. This session is geared towards project managers to help you communicate with your technical team and plan flexible and maintainable roles for your site.

You will learn about:
• How Drupal permissions work
• Typical problems with user roles in Drupal
• Controlling content access
• Tricky scenarios with distributions like Drupal Commons
