I'm new to silverstripe and I'm pretty familiar with php, but this cms is throwing me off a bit, haven't worked with oop php too much. Anyways, i'm porting a site over to this cms and i have a set of users that i'd like to insert into a security group, but it seems you can only insert one at a time... is there a way to insert more then one?

So I take it your adding members to a group programmatically rather than through a UI?. The group -> member relation is wrapped in a ComponentSet which has a method addMany() which you could call


Where $group would be your group object and $members a dataobjectset of the members you wish to add.

Through the UI would be the most helpful, but if that can't be done, then I guess it needs to be done programatically. I saw that it can export csv, but no import? I would only need to do it once, so should i do it through phpmyadmin then instead?
