Group and Role Management is an approach to help manage authorizations in an application. It allows an organization to manage application authorizations more efficiently by treating a collection of users who need the same type of application access as a unit. One or more authorizations can be associated with the role and users can be assigned to that role either by request or automatically based on some attribute they possess (i.e. department, job title, position, etc.).
