Aggregate rights of groups

Account can belong to multiple groups.
If an account belongs to multiple groups with conflicting access rights and roles, the account will have the aggregate of all rights and roles combined.
For example, in the figure below, Account X will have access rights and roles aggregated from those of both Group A and Group B.
Authorized role takes precedence to no role, whereas "Read/Write" takes precedence in case of access control.


o: Authorized   x: Not authorized
