How do I add a role?
In Plone 2.5 and using PAS, there is an additional step required to add a role. Here's how to make it work.

Warning: This item is marked as outdated.
If you want to add a role to your plone site, you need to do two things:
- Add the role in the ZMI, under the Security Tab.
- Add the role in the portal_role_manager, which is available under acl_users.
If only step 1 is executed, you will not be able to assign the role to groups using the "Users and Groups Administration" in site setup - the checkboxes for each role will be disabled. There are probably other things that fail to work as well.
