Ok this should be pretty simple I feel! But I can't find the documentation for it.

I can set assign a user to a user group within a plugin with:

craft()->userGroups->assignUserToGroups($userid, $groupid);

How do I do the reverse and remove a user from a user group?

assignUserToGroups has $groupIds parameter (int / array) preset to null. From the docs:

assignUserToGroups($userId, $groupIds = null)

So calling the function without that parameter set should do it:

  • Ok thanks that does the job. Do you know if there is a way to remove the user from a specific group? Just forward thinking here. Cheers

    Get all group IDs the user is assigned to and remove one group ID from that array, before passing it to assignUserToGroups.
