GroupUrlRule represents a collection of URL rules sharing the same prefix in their patterns and routes.

GroupUrlRule is best used by a module which often uses module ID as the prefix for the URL rules. For example, the following code creates a rule for the admin module:

new GroupUrlRule([
    'prefix' => 'admin',
    'rules' => [
        'login' => 'user/login',
        'logout' => 'user/logout',
        'dashboard' => 'default/dashboard',
    ],
]);

// the above rule is equivalent to the following three rules:

[
    'admin/login' => 'admin/user/login',
    'admin/logout' => 'admin/user/logout',
    'admin/dashboard' => 'admin/default/dashboard',
]

The above example assumes the prefix for patterns and routes are the same. They can be made different by configuring $prefix and $routePrefix separately.

Using a GroupUrlRule is more efficient than directly declaring the individual rules it contains. This is because GroupUrlRule can quickly determine if it should process a URL parsing or creation request by simply checking if the prefix matches.
