Creating admin groups

Admin groups allow you to determine which admin users can access which StorageGRID features.

Before you begin


  1. Select Configuration > Admin Groups.

    Groups page
  2. Click Add.
  3. For Type, select Local if you want to create a group that will be used only within StorageGRID, or select Federated if you want to import a group from the identity source.
  4. If you selected Local, enter a display name for the group. The display name is the name that appears in the user interface. For example, "Maintenance Users" or "ILM administrators."
  5. Enter a unique name for the group.
    For a local group, enter whatever unique name you want. For example, "ILM Admins." For a federated group, enter the group's name exactly as it appears in the configured identity source.
  6. Select one or more management permissions.

    You must assign at least one permission to each group; otherwise, users belonging to that group will not be able to sign in to StorageGRID.

  7. Click Save.
    The new group is created. If this is a local group, you can now add one or more users. If this is a federated group, the identity source manages which users belong to the group.
