Assignment groups API locking


Proposing an Idea to change the Assignment groups object


1 - Add an additional flag "lock" which defaults to "false". This could only be triggered via the Assignment Groups API.

When set to "true" the weight/name/grade are uneditable unless you have the following Account permission;
 - SIS Data Import
 - SIS Data Manage

2 - Assignment groups created by API are auto-locked unless impacted by an API call
Similar to CourseCode / SIS ID / Term etc when they are created via SIS import or API


Regardless of #1 / #2 - Teachers should still be able to move individual assignments to and from assignment groups, as well as still be able to create additional assignment groups.

Great idea, we would utilize this feature as well.
