Behold! The User Roles Fieldtype!

Overview

The User Role fieldtype is gives your users a way to pick one or more User Groups to attach to the current entry. What you do with that relationship is up to you, but most likely you'll be either listing users or combining it with the User:Is tag to protect content or areas of the frontend.

Data Storage

The User Role fieldtype stores the handle of a single group as a string, or an array of handles if max_items is greater than 1.

Templating

The User Role fieldtype uses augmentation to return the title and handle of each Role. You can use pass these values into the {{ user:is }} tag to protect content.

{{ user:is :role="role_field:handle" }}
You are a {{ role_field:title }}. Nice!
{{ /user:is }}
