Role Permissons Reordering

Idea created by Tom Kelsall on Nov 4, 2016
    Long term plan

    At the moment, we can add a restriction anywhere in the list, but permissions can only be added at the bottom; and permissions/restrictions are applied from the top down. This means that if a new need arises for a permission which is above the restrictions, you must wipe the role and rebuild from scratch. Could we please do one of the following two options? Either:


    • Make "Permissions" like "Restrictions" so they can be added anywhere (We'll still have to be careful to add them in the correct order but it would be an acceptable workaround).
    • Make it possible to re-order permissions and restrictions by use of either drag and drop or "Move up, Move Down" buttons. This would be by far the preferable solution but I appreciate it would take more resource and effort.
