  2. Click Add.
  3. Select Local to create a local group, or select Federated to import a group from the previously configured identity source.
  4. Enter the group's name.
    If you selected... Enter...
    Local Both a display name and a unique name for this group. You can edit the display name later.
    Federated The unique name of the federated group.
    Note: For Active Directory, the unique name is the name associated with the sAMAccountName attribute. For OpenLDAP, the unique name is the name associated with the uid attribute.
  5. In the Management Permissions section, select the tenant account permissions you want to assign to this group.
  6. In the Swift Permissions section, select the Administrator check box if you want users in this group to be Swift Administrators.
  7. Click Save.

    New group policies might take up to 15 minutes to take effect because of caching.
