Description of problem:
An ordinary user, having access to several groups, cannot move systems
between those groups.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As org admin, assign 2 or more groups to ordinary user
2. Log in as ordinary user
3. Try to assign system in one group to another
Actual Results: Cannot move system (no options to do so)
Expected Results: Should be able to assign to different groups, as
when logged in as ordinary user to RHN hosted
Nick - The problem with this RFE is this:
If we allow a user to move systems between groups they have access to,
then that affects other users ability to manage those systems. For
User A has access to systems in Group 1 and Group 2.
User B has access to systems in Group 2.
System Foo is in Group 2.
User A removes System Foo from Group 2, and places it in Group 1.
Result: User B no longer has access to System Foo.
We could implement a feature like 'group admin' where a specific user
is given the right to manage the systems in a group, but that's
further down the road.
