This page describes how to create groups of users and how to associate roles to Groups.
A Group is a collection of users. Groups are generally created to enable the bulk administration of multiple users. For example, you could have a Group of users called "London Administrators" and another Group "London Operators", where the "London Administrators" had Administrator rights to your processes and the users in "London Operators" were restricted to Operator rights.
To create a Group:
- Click on More, and then from the drop-down select Administration
- Click on Groups
- Click on Create Group
- Populate the Group details
Add users to a group
This is the result. The group now exist, but it does not have any users. To add users:
- Click on Add Users
- Enter the user names. Note that you can enter several names at once.
This is the result:
Add roles to a group
In the Roles section of the screen, you can add roles to a group.
Let's add for example the Process Creator and User Administrator roles.
As a result of this, the member of user group "London Ops Team" have the permissions associated with the Process Creator and the User Creator. In this example, the permissions granted would allow members of the group to create users and groups, create and change the configuration of processes, etc.
Delete a group
To delete an existing Group, simply place your mouse against the the Group and a Delete button will appear.
