Creating new user groups

An admin user can create new user groups.

The following steps demonstrate how to create a new user group.

  1. On the main navigation bar, click the gear icon.
  2. In the drop-down menu, click Users & Groups.

    Figure 3. Creating a New User Group

    The New Group modal window appears.

  4. In the New Group modal window:
    • Enter Group Name. We used Arcadia.
    • [Optional] Under Members, use the Search box to find users, and assign the new user to existing groups by selecting user groups on the left list, and then clicking Add to move them to the right. See additional information on adding users to user groups.
    • Click Save.

  5. Click Save.
  6. After the operation succeeds, you can check the Users interface, and see that the group assignment applies to the users just assigned to the new group, Arcadia.

  7. Similarly, the Groups tab shows that the group Arcadia is part of the list, and lists its three (3) members (ArcadiaUser, ArcadiaAdmin, and Administrator).
