How user types affect user groups

Every user is assigned a User Type by the Product Administrator. The User Type applies across all folders in an installation.

When a user from an LDAP group has an `Inherit Access' user type, that user always inherits the maximum permissions of any groups he belongs to. For example, in the following table, Rob belongs to three groups. His maximum permissions of all these groups allow him to create/edit and delete users, and configure test policies.

Group User Type Advanced View Create/Edit Users Delete Users Configure Server Groups Configure Test Policies
All Staff Standard User Y N N N N
Security Analysts Test Policy Administrator Y N N N Y
Developers User Administrator Y Y Y N N
Maximum Permissions N/A Y Y Y N Y
