The new Joomla! offers configurable usergroups - allowing you to create new groups with customized permissions. Using this MageBridge Product Connector, you can add a customer to a specific Joomla! usergroup once a product or a set of products is sold: This can be used to simple memberships, aftersales downloads or optimized marketing.
Whenever the Magento core saves an order to its own database, MageBridge triggers an event that is sent through the bridge-API to Joomla!, where it is transformed into a Joomla! plugin-event: This MageBridge process is called event forwarding. Thanks to this technology, Joomla! plugins can be used to react on Magento events. And in this case specifically, in the event that a Magento customer purchases a Magento product.
This product plugin for Joomla! User Group is the end-result. It allows you as a site-administrator to easily implement MageBridge event-forwarding without worrying about the details.
MageBridge Product Plugins can be installed into Joomla! using the MageBridge Update Manager. After a product plugin becomes active (by enabling it in the Joomla! Plugin Manager, you can pick its specific actions when creating a new MageBridge Product Relation in the Joomla! backend.
