Description James Kearns 2004-02-19 09:30:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
When I create a new role under the Roles tab, I notice this appears 
in Groups under the User Administration, Groups tab.
Then when I go to Add Members to the Role, search returns these Roles 
as Groups. I expect to set privileges by Role, not Group. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Role
2. Go to Groups
3. A new Group has appeared

Actual Results:  1. Created a role called "Jurassic editor"
2. Can now see a new Group. "Group Name: content Administration 
Jurassic editor"
3. This appears in Member search results for Groups 

Expected Results:  I expect Roles to be different from Groups. One 
would not create the other.

Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2004-02-19 10:16:33 UTC
Roles are just a convenience in CMS for associating a group with a
bunch of permissions. As such when you create a Role, it internally
creates a group, which you can then see in Groups tab at /ccm/admin.
This is the expected behaviour of the system.
