Creating groups manually

Groups are logical containers that are mechanisms that grant permissions to multiple users; members automatically share a group's permissions. Only authorization realms of the internal storage type can have manually created groups. Others types, such as LDAP, import groups cannot have manually created groups.


Adding groups to LDAP and SSO realms is deprecated.

  1. On the server, click Settings > Authorization (Groups) > Groups > Create Group. The Create Group dialog box opens.
  2. Provide a name for the group.
  3. Select an authorization realm.
    Groups are valid only for the selected realm.
  4. Click Save.
