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):
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
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.
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.
