The Roles API provides functionality for managing roles of group members.

With the Roles API, you can:

  • Assign a role to specific group members.
  • Unassign a role from specific group members.

Note: This module is only relevant for site admins and group admins.

To use the Roles API, import { roles } from the wix-groups.v2 module.


Before you begin

Before you begin coding, make sure to add the Wix Groups application to your site.


  • Site Admin: A site owner or site collaborator with admin permissions.
  • Group Member: A site member belonging to a group.
  • Group Admin: A group member that was assigned the 'group admin' role by either the site admin, or another group admin. The creator of a group is automatically a group admin. The group admin has the same permissions as a site admin, but only for the specified group.
