Description Gary Case 2008-06-17 23:13:57 UTC
Description of problem:
The whole group privilege entitled "Should users in this group be able to create
new users and edit users?" is not really a group privilege. It confusingly
grants all internal users in the currently selected group the ability to create
and edit new users when enabled. This should really be moved to the Users > View
User "username" page, as it should behave like the "Red Hat Employee" privilege
or the "Admin" privilege that are located there. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.6

How reproducible:
Every Time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to IT as a RH employee
2. Go to the Groups > (group name) > Privileges page
3. View the "Should users in this group be able to create new users and edit
users?" privilege.
  
Actual results:
Group privilege grants abilities that go beyond the group in which they are
granted. Very confusing.

Expected results:
Add/Edit users should be granted on an individual user basis in a less confusing
location, like the Users > View User "username" page.
