Groups

You can add and edit groups in the Reflection directory. The group list is read-only for added LDAP directories; these groups are managed on the LDAP server.

Group membership serves two purposes:

  • Membership in the Administrators group is required to log into User Manager.
  • Membership in groups can be used in combination with group-specific settings in the Reflection for Secure IT Server to customize file access for user groups.

For additional information about configuring group access, see the Web Edition Administrator's Guide.

Viewing Groups

  • To view the groups in an LDAP directory that has been added to User Manager, select the directory name in the drop-down list next to Select LDAP Server.
  • Click on a column head to sort the list based on the entries in that column.

Creating and Editing Groups

You can create and edit groups in the Reflection directory. You cannot modify the groups in added LDAP servers, however you can add users from added LDAP servers to your Reflection groups.

There are two ways to change Reflection group membership. You can edit the group. This technique allows you to add members from any LDAP server. You can also change group membership by editing individual users. This option is available only for members of the Reflection directory.
