<dd itemprop="description">Declares a name for a logical grouping of related permissions. Individual
permission join the group through the {@code permissionGroup} attribute of the
<code><a href="{@docRoot}guide/topics/manifest/permission-element.html">&lt;permission&gt;</a></code> element. Members of a group are
presented together in the user interface.
Note that this element does not declare a permission itself, only a category in
which permissions can be placed. See the
<code><a href="{@docRoot}guide/topics/manifest/permission-element.html">&lt;permission&gt;</a></code> element for element for information
on declaring permissions and assigning them to groups.
<dd><dl class="attr">
<dt><a name="desc"></a>{@code android:description}</dt>
<dd>User-readable text that describes the group. The text should be
longer and more explanatory than the label. This attribute must be
set as a reference to a string resource. Unlike the {@code label}
attribute, it cannot be a raw string.</dd>
<dt><a name="icon"></a>{@code android:icon}</dt>
<dd>An icon representing the permission. This attribute must be set
as a reference to a drawable resource containing the image definition.</dd>
<dt><a name="label"></a>{@code android:label}</dt>
<dd>A user-readable name for the group. As a convenience, the label can
be directly set as a raw string while you're developing the application.
However, when the application is ready to be published, it should be set
as a reference to a string resource, so that it can be localized like other
strings in the user interface.</dd>
<dt><a name="nm"></a>{@code android:name}</dt>
<dd>The name of the group. This is the name that can be assigned to a
<code><a href="{@docRoot}guide/topics/manifest/permission-element.html">&lt;permission&gt;</a></code>
<code><a href="{@docRoot}guide/topics/manifest/permission-element.html#pgroup">&lt;permissionGroup&gt;</a></code>
