Group permissions problem

I have the following group setup (rt-3.6.0pre1):

    GroupStaff:
      Members:
        User1
        User2
        User3
        GroupManagers
      Rights:
        SeeQueue
        OwnTicket
        TakeTicket
        ...etc
    
    GroupManagers:
      Members:
        Manager1
        Manager2
      Rights:
        AdminQueue
        Watch
    
    
    My question is, shouldn't Manager1 and Manager2 have the right
    to
    SeeQueue, OwnTicket, etc by virtue of the fact that the
    'GroupManagers'
    group is a member of the 'GroupStaff' group?
    
    Thanks.

Yes.

RTx::RightsMatrix can help you view and manage rights.
It’s on CPAN.

Yes.

It is not working that way then. I’ll investigate further and get back
to the list with my findings.

Thanks.

Yes. That is how I discovered the problem. (by the way, Good Work Todd!)> On Tue, Apr 18, 2006 at 04:53:59PM -0700, Joshua Colson wrote:

This was a stupid human error (me). I had the wrong management group as
a member of the lower level group.

Thanks all.
