I have a question

Post by ConnieMason »

Hi you all! So here is my question: Is it necessary to keep the default roles for future testing of extensions? Thanks in advance.

Is it necessary to remove them? Spoiler: no.
Use your roles and leave them in place, this way you will avoid issues in the future.

With all due respect but the question doesn't make sense.
The default roles (as any roles) provide an easy quick way to set permissions for a user/group. If they are removed you either have to make new roles or set each individual permission per user/group.

Also keep in mind that the default roles can be a welcome fallback if your custom permission set doesn't give the expected results.
Procrastination is my hobby, but I keep on postponing it.
