Communications Manager 9.x Roles and Groups

I want to give my helpdesk the ability to look up an end user on the end user page and then click the 2 check boxes under service settings for:

Home Cluster

Enable User for Unified CM IM and Presence (Configure IM and Presence in the associated UC Service Profile)

I created a new role base on the Standard CCMADMIN Read Only and uncheck all of the check boxes with the exception of user pages.

I created a new Group and added my new roll and the Standard CCM Admin Users role to my new gourp which is called helpdesk.

My issue is the users I have added to the new group Helpdesk have the ability to add themselves to a higher group such as the super user group. 

Is there a way to prevent a user from escalating their own priviliages?

Rob, a cisco engineer on my account team pointed out this enterprise setting.

1. Admin sets the enterprise parameter 'Allow non-super user to grant access to 
administrative web pages' to false. The default is true.
2. From then on each time an end user or application user who is not a super user 
adds an end user and puts that user in a user group, CCMadmin would check to see if
the user group has access right to any resources other than the UCMUser webapp
(User Options). If it does, then an appropriate error messages is thrown and the add
failed.

The user can STILL remove users from groups but atleast they can not add users to groups.

Thanks Rob as always your amazing and helpful!
