How Bryn Mawr Uses Group for Access Management


  • Michael Harris

In February 2022, Bryn Mawr College migrated its website of more than 10,000 nodes and more than 350 users from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9. In Drupal 7, Bryn Mawr relied on the Organic Groups ecosystem to manage content access and menus. In Drupal 9, we switched to the Group module. In this session, we describe how we configure Group. We also describe the views, VBOs, form alters, event subscribers, and other customizations we implement to overcome some of Group's pain points to make it work for us.

To make the most of this session, it is helpful to understand the business problems that contrib content access control modules (e.g. Organic Groups, Workbench Access) seek to address.
