Clone NIOS role and change all permissions?

We have an administrative group here with RW access to many many networks and DNS zones via a role assigned to that group. They've asked us to create a "read-only" version of their group/role for training purposes and I am wondering if there's a quick way to clone the role and mass-change all the permissions from RW to RO to save time doing manual adds or changes to permissions?

Hi Matt,

 

You can clone a role, for example, which creates a copy with all of the identical permissions. Unfortunately there is not an "easy" button to then change all of the permissions to RO. You would need to review the permissions and change them to RO accordingly for the cloned role. 

 

Leveraging the API you should be able to create a script that would read and change all of the permissions on a group/role, however.

That's what I figured and the path I am on now.

 

Thanks!
