Groups

When managing more than a few access users, it is difficult to keep track of each user's access rights. In most cases, users can be divided into manageable sets, where all (or a vast majority of) users require access rights to same Locations.

Such sets are called Groups - they are assigned access rights and contain a number of access users.

Key Group features:

1) Each access user within a group has the access rights assigned to that Group.

2) Access user can be assigned to more than one Group.

3) Access user's access rights are a union of Groups' access rights the user is a member of and his individual rights.

Feature #3 means that an access user as a part of a Group cannot have less access rights than the Group he is a part of. In other words, an access user cannot be denied the access right that the Group he belongs to has. For such special cases, access user's individual access rights must be edited, or a new Group created.
