We don't have the distinction of admin vs user in the new UI... I don't
think that exists in the API, it was just built in the Admin UI code which is
going away. The new UI uses the API as much as possible, so if we want this
functionality back we need to add this to the API... if you need this please
add a jira.

The folders don't get updated when objects add/delete/change, you need to
refresh your browser. One thing I have been considering is if you
add/change/delete an object that folders pane would just refresh and
everything would be collapsed... it's a difficult problem with ajax and not
refreshing the page... you can enter a jira for that too if you like :) I
can also add a refresh button to the folders pane to just reload that pane...

Firstly... THANK YOU Grouper team for the new UI. We are excited to get it
up and running.

In the new UI, it would appear there is no longer a distinction between
operating as an Admin and as myself. I presume this is intentional. I kinda
liked being able to act as a normal user. Will this be a future capability
of the new UI?

Also, I created a new group in an existing folder (as admin) and the folder
was open/visible in the Browse Folders pane. The new group did not get added
automatically to the Browse Folders pane. It is displayed in the My groups
link. When I reload the page, the Browse Folders pane shows the new group.
Either i am doing something wrong/stupid (as i usually do) or this is a bug.
if a bug, i am happy to create an jira item.
