I can't remember the details but ZAP does this...

If you care to look at the code you should be able to glean the
correct session values needed to assign group memberships. The login
function is a part of the core zap module.


>From the MemberMgmt page:

ZAP recently added a number of automatic group mgmt features to enable
you to do some interesting things with your members. First, a "group"
command allows you to add, remove, or reset entire groups with a
simple form. (Groups in ZAP are defined in wiki pages in a
configurable group called "Memberships"). These groups are
automatically scanned by ZAP when a person logs in, and memberships
are assigned and work exactly as if they were defined in

In addition, the ZAP toolbox has a {(grouplist)} markup that allows
you to display nicely formatted lists of group members, and two
conditionals: a group_exists and a group_member (checks if a person is
a member of a group). These capabilities allow you to do many
interesting things with groups!
