  6. Login with that user

Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: Behavior is as designed. An enhancement would need to be submitted for this behavior to change.

To get the User Group rights to propagate, this needs to be added in the User Group authorization tab: 
add a line with GRP = 1; type * with Read permission 

Although, it is not optimal, it is by design. 

Please submit a feature enhancement request if change in the design is desired.
