Creating a User Group

A user group is a set of users who perform the same tasks. Create user groups to simplify the administration of the CommCell environment.

Before You Begin

You must have the Add, delete, and modify a user group permission at the CommCell level. For information on permissions, see Permissions and Permitted Actions by Feature.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, go to Security.
  2. Right-click CommCell User Groups, and then click New User Group.

    The New User Group Properties dialog box is displayed.

  3. On the General tab, enter the details for the user group:
    1. In the Name field, type the user group name.
    2. In the Description field, type a description for the group.
  4. Optional: Set additional user group properties.

    For information on user group properties, see User Group Properties.

  5. On the Members tab, add users to the user group.

    For information on assigning users, see Assigning Users to User Groups from CommCell User Groups.

  6. To control the access of the user group, on the Associations tab, create a security association.

    For information on creating security associations, see Administering the Security Associations of a User Group.

  7. Click OK.
