Support » Plugin: CiviCRM Member Sync » New Association rule button absent

    Hello,
    I’m running civiCRM and your plugin (as well as CiviCRM Admin Utilities), on a multisite install (I also configured the multidomain extension)..
    There’s no button for creating a new association rule on the setting page of the network dashboard. What am I missing? 🙂
    Thank you!

    @larnoult I don’t have permission to view the Google Doc, but could it be that you’ve created rules for all Membership Types already?

    Thx for your answer, and sorry for the permission (fixed here).
    I’m not sure to understand your question. I have not created any rules so far (how would I without the button to create a new association?).
    I’m sure I must be missing an obvious feature of your plugin.

    @larnoult Okay, I see the screenshot now. Some questions, therefore:

    • Is CiviCRM network-enabled?
    • Or on a per-site basis?
    • Either way, is CiviCRM enabled on the main site?
    • Do you have any Membership Types?
    • If so, are they enabled?

    Hey @needle,

    Thanks for your feedbacks. My answer is “yes” to your 3 first questions and “not sure” to the last two… I did not install neither “membership” nor “group” plugin. Nevertheless, I have used “User Role Editor” to create and edit different WP roles and “User Access manager” to manage privacy. I also use BP member types. I’m not sure what do you exactly refer to “Membership Types”?

    While reading carefully your plugin description, I had understood that installation of “membership” or “group” plugin was not mandatory; I thought there were suggestions to fine tune role management (like “User Role Editor”).
    In other words, I thought I could be using your plugin to associate some WP roles (or capabilities) to some CiviCRM groups.

    So, do I have to install and activate “membership” or “group” plugin?
    Thanks

    I also use BP member types. I’m not sure what do you exactly refer to “Membership Types”

    BuddyPress Member Types are completely separate. I mean CiviCRM Memberships, which are of different “types” e.g. “Student”, “Lifetime” etc etc.

    https://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/latest/membership/defining-memberships/

    In other words, I thought I could be using your plugin to associate some WP roles (or capabilities) to some CiviCRM groups.

    @larnoult This plugin syncs CiviCRM Memberships to WordPress Roles or Capabilities. It doesn’t sync CiviCRM Groups. You need to have some CiviCRM Memberships configured (in your case on the main site) for it to work.

    do I have to install and activate “membership” or “group” plugin?

    These are optional. But having CiviCRM Memberships active and configured is not optional.

    Thanks for this very clear answer! Maybe for CiviCRM newbies like me, it would be worth adding in your plugin description (or installation) that civiMember component needs to be activated.
    I now realize that I’m looking for another plugin than your’s with a simpler functionality: syncing WP roles to CiviCRM groups. Any idea?
    I’ll keep your plugin in mind whenever we’ll activate CiviMember!
    Thanks again,
    Cheers

    @larnoult Thanks for the advice. I’ll bear that in mind.

    I don’t know of a plugin that does this directly. You could use CiviCRM Groups Sync to sync CiviCRM Groups to groups created by the Groups plugin, which would give you the same functionality with the added flexibility that WordPress Users don’t have to have a specific role – they get their capabilities from the Groups group that they are in.

    There’s also BP Groups CiviCRM Sync which does two-way synchronisation between BuddyPress Groups and CiviCRM Groups. There are hooks in BuddyPress that would allow you to apply a role to WordPress Users depending on their membership of a BuddyPress Group.
