User create Dynamic Role base

Francisco Quinones asked in General

Hi! So my app uses CanCanCan and Devise for working with users. Now the app needs to have a feature where users can create role. How can I approach this new task.

Admin(User) can create Roles with a permission list (can and can't with on/off boolean) without redeploying the app.


Check out Rolify. It can handle pretty much anything you want to do with roles and permissions.

Francisco, Did you ever find a solution to this? I know its older but I'm having a heck of a time finding resources on dynamic roles.. 
I recently did this using Rolify. _Fairly_ straightforward.
