#3918 closed enhancement (fixed)

Introduce a HelpHub Manager role with the ability to provision editors

Reported by: Clorith Owned by: Otto42
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: HelpHub Keywords: has-patch


This ticket includes a patch​ which introduces the new HelpHub Manager role, allowing manager users to add HelpHub Editors using the default profiles on wordpress.org/support/users/<username>.

This allows for more flexibility in who can be given the capabilities to manage HelpHub contributors, and also avoids the need for messing with core role and capability management.

Keymasters have the regular profile edit link which gives access to the same role changer, as such the capabilities for the base edit form is tied to the manage_helphub capability only (meaning HelpHub Managers and network admins will be able to see it).
