Understanding user groups and user group types

There are two general types of user groups:

  • Static user groups: Static user groups are those which are populated manually, that is, all users are individually added by the administrator.
  • Dynamic user groups: Dynamic user groups are populated and maintained through either a query or a directory server. For more information on dynamically populated user groups, see Managing dynamically populated user and device groups.

The different types of group are distinguished by their icon:



Static user group

Dynamic user group, managed via assigned queries

Dynamic user group, managed via a directory server
