Joomla User Groups vs. Virtuemart Shopper Groups
« on: April 15, 2019, 19:29:48 pm »
Latest VM and Joomla Versions:

In addition to the default virtuemart shopper group, I also created a special "dealer" shopper group and occasionally assign a user to it as needed.

I need to automatically also place any user that is in the "dealer" shopper group into a standard "dealer" JOOMLA USER GROUP.

How can I accomplish this? I don't see any correlation in the config settings anywhere.

AFAIK there is no correleation between these groups. There are some plugins out there for automatic insertion into user groups.

Primary problem that I am having is that the only plugins I can find seem to be the opposite of what I need.

I need a plugin that specifically takes a user that is ALREADY in a VM group and then places them in a user group, not the other way around.

I don't know of such a plugin. How would these users be identified?

Why not at the same time assign them to the Joomla group?

I am making it as easy as possible for the client. I would rather customize it so that they do not have to do twice the work. Also, when you have thousands of user accounts, that takes a lot of extra time.

I did finally find a solution... I am now using a paid plugin called "Shopper Group Changer" by DayCounts (https://www.daycounts.com/shop/virtuemart-3/shopper-group-changer). It did not work exactly the way I needed at first but the developers made a quick change to the product for me and it functions as needed now. Essentially, it works as:

- If a user is in VirtueMart Shopper Group XXXXX, put them into Joomla Group XXXXX

I am still working out a successful cron to run it automatically, but this is what I  was looking for.
