Description

Hi,

I would like to make a suggestion for a more userfriendly backend user groups modul.

When you have multiple backend users and backend usergroups, it's really complicated to keep track of the rights assignment.
You have the users and you can assign groups to the user but you don't know which particular rights the user has. You have to go into each be usergroup to find out which checkmarks are set. Comparing 3 or 4 different groups, almost impossible. Sure, you can name the be groups to make the purpose clear and split them for functionality/roles (ACL Group, Database mount group, page groups etc.) We already use this approach and have a lot of groups because some groups inherit from each other.

Lets say someone sets a right in the wrong group...you have to check every group which is assigned to the user to find out what is wrong.

My suggestion:

Add a new tab "user rights" to the be user properties where you can see all options and usergroups in a 2-dimensional overview (see the attached screenshot). Vertically you see all the ACL, DM, PG options and horizontally you see all usergroups. With this view you can easily see all the groups and rights which the user has. You can easily check if you have assigned the same right to multiple groups, you can change and edit the groups right, maybe create new groups aswell. That way you don't have to switch the usergroups to check the rights assignment - which can be very time consuming.

Maybe you have other suggestions or want to add something. I think there is much potential to optimize the rights assignment workflow. Maybe not for the upcoming LTS10, but maybe for LTS11...
