[rt-users] Assign Global Rights to Group?

We find that the best way for us to manage user rights is to create a number
of groups, assign global rights to the groups, and then assign users to the
appropriate group.

I'm trying to work out how to assign global rights to a group via a Perl
script, but I'm not having much luck.  A simple case might look something
like this, I think:


use strict;
use warnings;

use lib "/usr/share/request-tracker4/lib";

use RT;


use RT::Group;
use RT::User;
use RT::Principal;

my ($group, $status, $msg);

$group = RT::Group->new( $RT::SystemUser );
$group->LoadUserDefinedGroup( "Group2" );
die "couldn't load group" unless $group->id;
print("SelfDescription : " . $group->SelfDescription() . "\n");

$group->GrantRight(Object => , Right => "CreateTicket");

This works up to and including the print.  So the problem, of course, is
that the GrantRight call is obviously incomplete.  I haven't figured out
what the Object should be.  And maybe there is some additional work to set
it up.  Suggestions on where to get started to understand this?
