    Hi,

    Groups are not created in WSRR or in WSRR Studio. They are created in the user registry that is used by WebSphere Application Server. There are several different types of user registry that can be configured for use by WebSphere Application Server: for example, an LDAP user registry, a federated user registry (which can be configured in the WAS administration console) or a local-OS user registry. The means by which you add a new group is dependent on the type of user registry that is used.

    There some information in the WAS information center here: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.express.iseries.doc/info/iseriesexp/ae/tsec_useregistry.html

    The precise steps that you'll need to follow depend on what registry is used and whether you have administrative rights to administer the registry in question.

    If you have admin rights in WAS then you can go WAs admin console -> Security -> Global Security and then check the selection under "User account repository". If you are using Federated repositories (which is the default for a new WAS install) then you add a new group in Users and Groups -> Manage Groups.

    Cheers,

    Chris
