Managing Users with Groups

To make it easier to manage users, you can create groups whose members inherit the group permissions.

To work with groups, you:

  • Create the group.
  • Add group members.
  • Assign group permissions.

    The permissions are the same as those that are assigned to individual users.

A user can belong to several groups, inheriting permissions from all groups they belong to. However, explicit permissions assigned in the user's Properties dialog box overrule inherited group permissions.
