Working with and modifying an individual group

When you open an individual group in GuardiumĀ® Insights, you can see its members and a summary of its details and any error messages related to it. You can also specify which user roles can access the groups - and you can modify the member list of any group that you have created (the only group members that cannot be modified are those in groups that you have imported from and kept in sync with Guardium).

Before you begin

By default, you must be assigned the Administrator role to be able to manage groups.
Important: If you have policy rules that use groups as rule conditions, modifying the groups by adding or removing members will result in re-installation of the active policy rules.

To open the Groups page, select Groups in the main menu at the upper left of the page (open this menu by clicking the main menu icon (main menu).


When you click on a group or select its checkbox and click Open, you are taken to its details page:
  • Members tab: This tab displays the group's members.
    • To add one or more members, click Add member. Then, in the Add member dialog box, enter the member in the Member field. To add further Member fields in which you can add additional members, click Add another for each additional member. After adding more members, click Save.
    • To delete a member, click the Delete button (Delete icon) next to the member. To delete one ore more members, select the checkbox next to any member that you want to remove and then click Delete in the banner that opens.
    • To learn how to add members from a comma-separated values (.csv) file, see Importing group members from a CSV file.
    • If you have an existing LDAP connection, you can add members from it. See Importing group members from LDAP for more information.
    Note: You cannot modify group members if the group has been imported from and kept in sync with Guardium or imported from and kept in sync with LDAP. In addition, you cannot import group members from a CSV file or LDAP connection to a parent group.
  • Roles tab: This tab displays which user roles have access to the group. To modify access to the group, click Manage roles. In the Assign roles dialog box, select which roles have View access and/or Full access to the role and then click Save.
  • Summary tab: This tab contains general information such as the group type and the source of the group (if it is predefined, user-created, or imported). In addition, the tab indicates if the group is a parent group - and if there are any current information or error messages related to the group.
  • If you edit a predefined group, you can restore its original state by selecting the group and clicking Reset to default.
