User Groups

NOTE: The User Groups page is accessible from the following locations:

  • Security Policy Management > User Groups

  • User Management > User Groups

SPP allows you to either create a local group that exists and is managed within SPP only, or add a directory group that is synchronized from an external Active Directory or LDAP server. Then a Security Policy Administrator can add one or more user groups to an entitlement, which will authorize members of the group(s) to request access to the accounts and assets governed by the entitlement's access request policies.

User Groups is available to the Authorizer Administrator, User Administrator, Security Policy Administrator, Help Desk Administrator, Auditor, and Asset Administrator. Not all functionalities will be available to all user types.

The User Groups view displays the following information about the selected user or directory group.

  • Properties tab (user groups): Displays general information about the selected user group.
  • Users tab (user groups): Displays the members of the selected group.
  • Entitlements tab (user groups): Displays the entitlements for which the group has been assigned to. All members of the group then inherit access to the request policies of the entitlement.

    NOTE: The Entitlements tile is only visible to the Auditor and Security Policy Administrator.

  • History (user): Displays the details of each operation that has affected the selected group.

Use these toolbar buttons to manage users.
