Pepper Roles 1.8 Released

This is a maintenance release to fix several bugs recently reported by users, including a major bug that broke the main navigation menu in Spiceworks 7.5.00087. In recent versions, I chose to “minify” (compress) the JavaScript code for this plugin so that it would load faster. However, the compression utility I was using appears to have altered the code (including removing many semicolons) and this seemingly caused some permissions to break – allowing users to get into certain parts of Spiceworks that they were not allowed access to. In this release, I have left the code uncompressed and during my tests this has appeared to resolve the issue.

As always, go to Settings > Manage Apps after installing this release and double-check that you have appropriate permissions assigned to each group. If you discover any bugs in this version, post a comment below or send me an email.
