      Description

      Summary
      There is naming and functional inconsistency with 'Add User' in Organizations and Sites. Please reference the screenshots.

      Steps to Reproduce
      For Organizations
      1. Create an organization "Liferay Organization".
      2. Navigate to the list of organizations and click the Action button for the organization “Liferay Organization." You will see two options “Assign Users” and “Add User."
      3. Then click on "Add User" and you will see a new user form which will create a new user which will, after creation, be automatically added to the organization.
      4. Selecting "Assign Users" will select users that have already been created, and assigning them to the organization.
      For Sites
      1. Create a site "Liferay Site."
      2. Navigate to Site Memberships in the control panel. Then click on "Add Members" the select "User" it will give you the option to assign already created users to the sight as opposed to creating a new user form.

      It appears that there is an inconsistency as the 'Add User' in Organizations directs to a create user form, but the 'Add User' in Sites actually assigns users. For this to be consistent, either the 'Add User' should be changed to 'Assign User' in Sites, or the feature of 'Add User' changed so that it creates a new user. What appears to be most consistent would be to have two options, 'Add User' and also 'Assign User' both of which have behavior that mirrors the behavior in Organizations.

      I have created a patch request as I think this is a bug, not a feature request.

        This is working as intended.

        Under Organizations, we are adding a user. This is why the user creation is being pulled up.

        While navigating through Sites, the selection is Adding Members to a site - and so the drop down actually means 'adding a user as a member to the site'. Which is why it goes to assigning out those users.

        To correct this behavior we would have to make a feature request because Organizations have "Add User" and "Assign User" while Sites just has "Assign User".
