The group area includes everything that can be broken down into a group of several users and their authorizations.
It is possible to create groups in SCM-Manager to not authorize each user individually. Groups can be authorized and can contain an unlimited number of users.
The groups overview shows a list of all groups that are existing. Groups are distinguished between internal and external groups. Internal groups are groups that were created in SCM-Manager and are indicated by a house icon. External groups were created for external sources like a connected LDAP instance and have a world icon.
Groups only require a name. It is also possible to add members to a group directly when they are created. Only the permissions of the group have to be added afterwards.
The information page of a group shows the meta data as well as the members.
To apply settings or permissions for all regular users (that is all accounts except anonymous),
one can use the group
_authenticated. This group is an implicit one and every user account except
anonymous is a
member of this group.
