Creating and Editing Groups
You can create and edit groups in the FileXpress directory. You cannot modify the groups in added LDAP servers; however, you can add users from an added LDAP server to your FileXpress groups.
There are two ways to change FileXpress group membership.
- Edit a group
You can add or delete members from any existing group. If you are creating a new group, you need to create the group first, then modify the members list as a separate step.
This option allows you to add members of the FileXpress directory and any added LDAP servers.
Required role: System setup
- Edit a user
You can modify the list of groups that a user is a member of.
This option is available only for members of the FileXpress directory.
Required roles: System setup and Manage FileXpress users
To add a new group
- On the Groups page, set LDAP Server to FileXpress.
- Click New.

To edit a group's list of members
- On the Groups page, select a FileXpress group and click Edit.

- Set LDAP Server to the directory from which you want to add users.
- Use Filter User to help you locate the user or users you want to add.

To edit a user's group membership

FileXpress Gateway includes two default groups.
