Was trying to get both
content_access modules to work, and discovered this
node_access business for the first time. I've realised that most modules dealing with this have used Drupal's role
rid as the
gid when writing access rules, which is logical because it maps roles to grants simply, but the
gid column is INT. Backdrop no longer has a
rid, so to get his to work, I've had to write a doubtful function which maps each role to an INT, stored in config. Not fun.
Can that column be changed to simply accept the role's
name rather than a
rid? What would be the implications of this?
