Is there any way we can display user permissions (e.g. delete all nodes) to a user role inside a view?

Permissions would be change-able with check-boxes.

  • Sorry I should've mentioned, I want those permissions to be change-able. Jul 20, 2016 at 10:53
  • Permissions would be change-able with check-boxes.? Hopefully this view is for admins only... you don't want any user to change permissions.

  • yes of course. This view is only for admins. Jul 20, 2016 at 11:01
  • I thought of simply displaying admin/people/permissions to admin but then if there is any better solutions. Also if possible, I wanna display only few of all permissions. Jul 20, 2016 at 11:07

To create a view of permissions you'd have to write a custom module that would allow views to do the search. I'm not aware of a module that does that now. Given how roles are defined and managed this would be a challenging module to get right.

If you just want to improve the user interface for permissions form you might look at these modules:

If you want to give admins a limited number of roles they can assign the Role Assign module may provide what you need.
