When configuring users and groups, take time to plan how you want to deploy applications in your environment.

Creating groups and then adding users is the recommended approach, because you invest the time up-front to define the recommended and optional applications for groups that represent the user types in your environment (for example, staff who frequently travel, contract or student employees) and then, when you add new users to the group, they automatically inherit all of the group settings.

Note

If you create individual application assignments for a user and then add them to a group, the individual settings will take precedence over the group settings.

When adding new users, you can avoid repetitive work by inviting multiple users at one time using the spreadsheet tool provided. Another option for minimizing administrative overhead would be to link to your Active Directory, if applicable. See Configuring an external LDAP connection for more information.

To create groups

Groups are a powerful tool for managing similar types of users with minimal administrative effort. When planning what groups to create, consider that users can only belong to one group at a time.

  1. From the BMC AppZone Administration Console, click People.
