Populating groups

The group builder supports several methods of adding members to groups.


  1. Click the add icon to create a new group or select a group from the Group Builder table and click the edit icon to edit an existing group.
  2. Select the Members tab of the Create new group or Edit group dialog.
  3. Populate the group using one of the following methods:
    • Use the add icon to manually define group members.
    • Use the Import menu to add group members using one of the following methods:
      • From CSV
      • From group
      • From external datasource
      • From query
      • From LDAP
      Tip: Once configured, import actions that can be scheduled will appear as tabs on the Create new group or Edit group dialog. One-time actions such as Import from CSV cannot be scheduled and will not introduce a new tab to the dialog.
    • Some group types also support advanced methods for populating groups, including the following:
      • Using stored procedure analysis on datasources
      • Using database dependencies
      • Using reverse dependencies
      • Using observed procedures
      • Generating selected objects
      Important: Using the group builder introduced with Guradium V10.1.4, advanced import actions are invoked on a target group that is populated based on the results of analysis performed on a user-selected input group. This represent a change in behavior from the legacy group builder, where advanced actions were invoked on a source group containing the input to be analyzed, with the results of the analysis being imported into a user-selected group.
