Drupal Enterprise 7: Edit Permissions for Group Roles

The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 7 Groups configuration.

Group permissions are in addition to Drupal's core permissions system. Typically, group permissions cannot give a user permission to do something that they don't already have from Drupal's core permissions. Group permissions are best used to restrict access and functionality.
