The group’s app allows an administrator to create, delete and modify groups on the system. Groups can be used to efficiently manage permissions in accessing server resources. This app divides the grouping list into two core parts namely, User Defined Group and Default Admin Group.
Note: The User Defined Groups section can be used to add new groups and specific users can then be assigned to the newly created groups based on their role.
The Groups application is installed by default and can be accessed from the left-hand navigation panel.
|Left-hand Navigation Panel > System Configuration > Account Roles > Groups|
New groups can be created and added to the Crystal Eye XDR in the User Defined Groups Section. The CE XDR comes with a default group called ‘rp_admin_group’. Each group consists of its members also known as ‘users’ and these members/users can be assigned to any groups.
