Playing with the user access levels in Grav, I realize that when a user is assigned the permission to manage users (create, update, list, etc) they can change the permissions and password of the admin user.
How can you set different permission levels to manage users without a lower level user modifying a higher level user?
The Grav super admin user is the user who performs the first install and is identified by a crown icon within the user options in the admin panel. Also, if you assign super admin permissions to any other user, they change their icon to a crown.
I understand what you are saying, but the problem I raise is the following. If you give a user permissions to manage other users, they can switch to the super admin user (which is the first one created when Grav is installed). I think there should be some way to establish permission hierarchy for users so that a lower level user cannot manage the permissions of a higher level user.
For example, a level 1 user (below the super administrator), could have permissions to manage users (create, modify, etc) but always at a lower level than himself, never other higher level users.
I think it’s a difficult question at the moment, although it would be nice to implement this option in Grav.
A likely scenario to explain this would be the following:
I have to create a user, for example, Editor level 1, who can create users and give them permission to access different pages of the site. This level 1 Editor user should not be able to change either the password or the permissions of the Super Administrator user, but this does not actually work like that.
If I give this Level 1 Editor user permissions to manage users, it can change to the Super Administrator user.
This is the current setting for this user so that they can access Admin, but cannot manage users:
