I am having troubles getting organic groups permissions working.

In my grouptype I want to give the groupadmin the permission to edit the group.

On an OG level:


I have set the permissions to 'Edit group' for administratormember

On a Global level:


I have set the permission to Edit 'Mygrouptype'

However still my groupadmins are not able to edit their group. Setting this permission on a groupmember level does give the groupadmin the permission.

What am I missing?
