I didn't find out any documentation, but looking at the code I saw that the
user must have CmsRole.SYSTEM_USER to be able to list Web Users. Again, is
there a full list of required permissions for common OpenCms functions?

I found out that you can set a user in the definition of a scheduled job. If
this user has the above mentioned role (I figured out that Admin would have
it), it runs OK.

I still don't understand what roles are associated to the standard groups
(Projectmanagers, Users, etc), and how to associate roles to new groups. Can
someone please enlighten me?
