We would like to have the Manage Users functionality that is available with vsite_users restricted to only those with the administrator role (and not available to scholar admin). We have integrated shibboleth, and we don't want users logging in straight through drupal instead of shibboleth. Also we don't want scholar site owners to be able to search for existing site users, due to FERPA concerns. We would like to just have the scholar site owner request from us that a user be given access to edit their site and we handle the allocation of privileges on the back end.
Currently, we have vsite_users disabled (via features /admin/build/features#openscholar-vsite) in order to remove the users section of the Control Panel. But with that disabled, there doesn't seem to be another way for Administrators to grant users access to another user's scholar site. Any ideas for how to have vsite_users enabled but only accessible by those with the administrator role?
