The method GetUserRight returns array of roles (in the form of a string) assigned to a number of groups (group of a current user by default) for the specified module. The role descriptor returned is meaningful for the specified module.

Generally, each module has specific role descriptors. A unique set of roles can be assigned to the module using the method GetModuleRightList of a class named by the module ID. For example, the Support module exposes method support::GetModuleRightList() defined in the file /bitrix/modules/support/install/index.php. Roles are usually assigned using the module settings form.

For any module, role of the maximum level of permission (module administrator) is always indicated with the symbol W, while the role of the minimum level of permission - with D (deny).
