Permission Select is a module that allows for quicker editing of role permissions on /admin/user/permissions.
The module utilizes jQuery to manipulate the DOM, creating links to check all / uncheck all on each set of permissions for each module. This allows for quicker manipulation of permissions for standard users.
This still requires a user to visit and modify permissions in the Drupal backend. If you need a solution to programatically create and modify permissions, please consider using the Permissions API.
- Creates a set of check all / uncheck all links for each role/module combination at /admin/user/permissions
- Now also creates a global permission select area that will enable the admin to check or uncheck EVERY permission for any role. This really is only useful for creating a super user account, or disabling a role entirely.
