Automatically assign the "Go to Control Panel" or "Go to Site Administration" when a role has been given permission by a Portal Administrator to access a portlet within them

    Details

      Description

      The goal of this improvement is to prevent a common usability mistake when defining permissions of a role. The administrator may, for example, give permission to "Access in Control Panel" for the "Users & Organizations" portlet. However unless he also give "Go to Control Panel" (which happens to be in another section of the define permissions UI) the user will have no way to go there.

      After thinking through the best way to solve this we realized that in every situation in which an "Access in Control Panel" permission is assigned it will be desirable to also give "Go to Control Panel" because otherwise the permission is useless. The same applies to "Access in Site Administration" and "Go to Site Administration". So the Go-To permissions will be assigned automatically in these situations.
