Groups from Active Directory are available in the irCatalog Manager Website only when the irCatalog Service is configured to use LDAP. Groups can be defined from the Groups module.
To Add a Group
Click on the "Add" button in the Groups module. By default, all Active Directory groups will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can filter the list by entering a Group Name and clicking the magnifying glass.
Wild card searches for groups can be entered in the text box. By default a "Starts With" search will be performed.
Select a group by clicking the associated row and click "Next".
Select the permissions to apply to the group and click "Add Group".
For any Active Directory groups that have been added, when a new user belonging to the group logs into irCatalog, their irCatalog user account will be created automatically. Users of that group will inherit the permissions applied to the group.
To Edit a Group
To edit a group, navigate to the specific group page by clicking on the group name link. Then, click the "Edit" button.
Update the roles for the group and click "Save changes".
To Deactivate / Activate a Group
To deactivate a group, navigate to the specific group page by clicking on the group name link. Then, click the "Deactivate" button.
When a group is inactive, the permissions assigned to that group do not get inherited by the group's users. In addition, users of that group who have not already had a user record created in irCatalog will not be able to log in.
To reactivate a group, navigate to the inactive group by clicking on the group name link. Then click the "Activate" button.
To Delete a Group
To delete a group, navigate to the specific group page by clicking on the group name link. Then, click the "Delete" button.
User entries already added to irCatalog from that group (via logging in) will NOT be deleted when deleting the associated group. However, if their permissions were only inherited from the group and not directly applied, users of that group will no longer have any permissions.
