Permissions are inherited from roles or groups. Users inherit permissions from an assigned role and endpoints inherit permissions from an assigned group. Each endpoint can have a unique set of permissions whether or not it is a member of a group. When users are assigned a role they adopt the permissions of that role.
In a nested group, if permissions are assigned to a particular group, any groups that are already within that group do not inherit those permissions. However, if you assign permissions to a particular group, then add or move a group to that group, the new group will inherit the parent group?s permissions.
