Major Changes

This update brings a Major change to the Groups Module. We will be upgrading from Groups v1 to Groups v2. This new version of Group has removed the Global Super Admin permissions to manage/edit Groups within Drupal. This changes how user roles work within Groups, the biggest change is for Architects. Now Architects must also be a member of a Group they wish to edit, luckily, if you are not a member you can join the group and this will automatically assign the Group Architect role.

Site Managers/Architects can also Create more Group roles and sync them to other Global Drupal roles.

Drupal 9 uses the Groups module, which functions like Organic Groups (OG) that we have in Drupal 7 to section out a large website. With OG and Groups v1 users did not explicitly have to be a member of the Group to mange/edit Group content. With this update we have worked to mitigate the barriers as much as we can to ensure compatibility with our sites and authoring.
