New granular staff permissions for Orders

Previously the single Orders permission would grant staff access to a wide range of actions, including editing order attributes, managing payments, fulfilling and shipping orders, as well as canceling and deleting orders. Now there are 12 new, more granular staff permissions: View orders, Manage order information, Apply discounts, Set payment terms, Capture payments, Mark as paid, Fulfill and ship orders, Buy shipping labels, Return, Cancel orders, Delete orders, and Manage abandoned checkouts. This increased granularity gives merchants more control over staff access to specific actions on orders.

All existing staff members who have previously been given the singular Orders permission will automatically have all the new permissions selected by default to ensure backward compatibility. Merchants have the option to select (or unselect) a subset of these permissions when more granular access control is needed.
