DSM needs option to grant group authorization

In DSM you currently have to add users individually under the tool option the 'Users and Privilege' option. This is time consuming and not an effective way of adding groups of users for a specific line of business. You can also use the ./usermgt.sh command and set up scripts under Linux to add multiple users at a time but this also is time consuming and error prone. We would like to be able to set up groups within DSM, add users to the groups, and then grant authorization at that level. This would allow us to keep the groups organized by line of business and make maintenance much easier. We would only need to set up authorization for groups and then users could be easily added or removed without needing to execute any additional authorization commands.
