    We experience an issue with Yoast capabilities.
    Step to reproduce the problem:
    – activate Yoast SEO
    – In role editor (editor profile) enable all 4 capabilities and SAVE
    1-Wpseo bulk edit
    2-Wpseo edit advanced metadata
    3-Wpseo manage options
    4-Wpseo manage redirects
    – ALL WORKS WELL
    – Try to disable and re-enable YOAST SEO
    – In role editor you will see only the two main capabilities enabled:
    1-Wpseo bulk edit
    4-Wpseo manage redirects

    Thanks for your support.

    “Yoast SEO” has own capabilities manager, which removes all wpseo capabilities on plugin deactivation and adds them to the pre-defined list of roles on plugin activation.
    There is a filter , using which it’s possible to tell “Yoast SEO” which capability to which role add/remove automatically on plugin activation/deactivation.

    
    /**
     * Filter: Allow changing roles that a capability is added to.
     *
     * @api array $roles The default roles to be filtered.
     */
    $filtered = apply_filters( $capability . '_roles', $roles );
    

    For example with code below you will have ‘wpseo_manage_options’ capability granted to ‘editor’ role automatically on “Yoast SEO” plugin activation:

    
    add_filter('wpseo_manage_options_roles', 'wpseo_manage_options_roles', 10, 1);
    
    function wpseo_manage_options_roles( $roles ) {
    
        $roles[] = 'editor';
    
        return $roles;
    }
    

    You may add it to the active theme functions.php file or setup it as a Must Use plugin.

    Thanks Vladimir for this useful suggestion. Using your code I reach to automatically enable 3 of 4 options. Do you know why?

    Wpseo bulk edit
    Wpseo manage options
    Wpseo manage redirects

    but not

    Wpseo edit advanced metadata

    ….I honestly didn’t understand the reason

    It works at my side as expected. Try to use code below:

    
    add_filter('wpseo_edit_advanced_metadata_roles', 'wpseo_edit_advanced_metadata_roles', 10, 1);
    
    function wpseo_edit_advanced_metadata_roles( $roles ) {
    
        $roles[] = 'editor';
    
        return $roles;
    }
