Exercise 1.1: Add new roles and users

In this exercise we’ll add our required Job Seeker role, then we’ll add users and assign roles to them.

Create a new role

  1. 1.
    Navigate to PeopleRoles from the Admin menu.
  2. 2.
    Add the Job Seeker role (the Content Author and Content Approver roles exist in GovCMS out-of-the-box).
  3. 3.
    Reorder the roles with the role with least permissions at the top, and the most permissions at the bottom.
  4. 4.
    Click Save.

Add users

  1. 1.
    Navigate to People on the Admin menu.
  2. 2.
    Add two test users:
    • testeditor - assign the Content Author role.
    • testjobseeker - assign the Job Seeker role.

Test user roles

Lastly, test the new roles by logging in as the test accounts.
  • Option 1: Logout of the superuser user/1 account and log back in again as testeditor or testjobseeker.
  • Option 2: Open another browser and login as one of the test users.
