How to use permissions and groups

Reported by: abalter Owned by: cbalan
Priority: high Component: UserManagerPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords: user, role, group, subject, permissions
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


I can't figure out how I am supposed to use permissions and groups. I have attached some screenshots to show what I'm seeing.

I'm logged in as admin. I show the view from Admin>Permissions so you can see what groups I have set up and what their permissions are.

Q1. Is a "Role" in usermanagerplugin the same as a "Subject" in Admin>Permissions?

When I look at the permissions tab for users, they belong to groups that they are not supposed to. There are check boxes by the groups, but no button for "remove".

Q2a. How do I set what groups a user belongs to? Q2b. Are these "groups" the same as "Role" or "Subject"?

Permissions that are already selected are greyed out. Therefore, I cannot change them.

Summary of questions:

  1. What is the difference between "Role", "Group", "Subject"
  2. Where/How do I definitively set what "Group" a user belongs to and what permissions they have when using the UserManagerPlugin?

Thanks, Ariel
