Vivek – Permissions in UI https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Grouper+attribute+action+editor+in+new+UI
• Making good progress

• Team: please review the screenshots Vivek sent by email

• Next: Vivek will be creating permission capability for entities (always with  a role assigned) in the new UI

• Attribute assignments on stems -- Chris will create a patch for this sooner

• Roadmap of transferring the capability from Grouper LITE UI to New  UI will be largely complete when Vivek finishes this work. Then we will review gaps
