    Is there a way to automatically assign a second role to two different. I am setting up different registration processes for different roles, so:

  • Store Manager – auto assign Support Agent
  • Store Staff – auto assign Support Agent
  • Customer – auto assign Support User
  • Any insight on this would be appreciated.


Custom code may help only. New user is registered via WordPress internal function wp_insert_user(). This function executes special action:

		 * Fires immediately after a new user is registered.
		 * @since 1.5.0
		 * @param int $user_id User ID.
		do_action( 'user_register', $user_id );

Thus, it’s possible to hook own function to ‘user_register’ action and add secondary role to user according to his primary role.
