We have some situations where we'd like to be able to assign privileges to groups by the evaluation of a rule. For example, rather than assigning privileges for instructional support staff to thousands of course groups, we'd like to set up a rule that gives them staff privileges because a course group is at some level under the COURSE stem. Is there a way to do that in Grouper?

I looked at the Grouper rules documentation, but as far as I can tell, Grouper rules only set privileges when a group is created, and the end result is still individual privileges set on each group rather than applying a rule to determine privileges. We've encountered performance problems when assigning the members of a group privileges to thousands of groups, and we'd also like to be able add and change rules-based privileges after the groups have been created.
