Hi Niels,

It works a little bit differently. You would assign a role to a 
user/group in a domain. If you want to assign a role globally to a group 
you can do that by adding an 'authrole' to the domain 'everywhere' 
(although you probably want to assign the role in the domain 

If you select the domain 'hippodocuments' in the quickstart you can 
actually see two authroles. One that assigns the editor role to the 
group editor and one that assigns the role author to the group authors. 
The UI (mostly css) still isn't perfect, but we're working hard to fix 
this asap.

If you use the console reguarly you can also check the same config under 
/hippo:configuration/hippo:domains/hippodocuments. You will see the 
authrole config nodes as childeren of that node.
