SecuritySuite: How to set Record SecurityGroup on save based on users SecurityGroup

Ok, so I have roles created and users assigned to those roles however I need to be able to set the security group of a record when it is created based on the current users Security Group for example

Groups: Insurance and Investment and Managers

Managers can see both Insurance and Investment Groups. Managers can also add and modify records. The problem comes in when the manager creates a new record for Insurance or Investment.

If the manager creates a record on the Insurance side it needs to go under the insurance group and for investment it needs to go under investment.

I’m thinking that using a logic hook may be able to do. Any ideas :slight_smile:

I would say an after_save logic hook should do it.

Here’s a snippet of similar code that might help you get a head-start:

	$securityTeam = new SecurityGroup();
	$securityTeam->retrieve_by_string_fields(array('name' => $group_to_assign ));
	if ( $securityTeam->id == null)
		$GLOBALS['log']->fatal("Group with the name '" . array('name' => $group_to_assign ) . "' wasn't found!");

My code is not from a hook so you’ll have to adapt it, but it should be pretty self-explanatory. $record is the record to which you want to assign the group.
