Creating Permission Groups

You can create a permission Group and add any users from the Site to a Group. You can then grant permission to folders by Groups rather than granting permissions to each individual user. Refer to Deleting Groups for information about deleting a Group.

To create a permission Group

  1. In the administration interface, connect to EFT and click the Server tab.

  2. On the Server tab, click the Groups node, then in the right pane, click New.

  3. The Create New Group dialog box appears.

  4. Type a name for the Group in the Group Name box. For example, type R&D. The Group Name can contain up to 255 characters.

  5. Click OK. The new group appears under the Groups node.

Refer to Adding or Removing Users to or from a Group and The Virtual File System for information about users' permissions in relation to their assigned Group(s).
