Duplicating a group

You can create new groups more quickly by duplicating an existing group.

Before you begin


  1. Select ACCESS MANAGEMENT > Groups.
  2. Select the check box for the group you want to duplicate.
  3. Select Duplicate group.

    Step 1 (Choose a group type) appears.

    For additional details on creating a group, see the instructions for creating groups for an S3 tenant or for a Swift tenant.

  4. Select the Local group tab to create a local group, or select the Federated group tab to import a group from the previously configured identity source.
    Attention: If single sign-on (SSO) is enabled for your StorageGRID system, users belonging to local groups will not be able to sign in to the Tenant Manager, although they can use client applications to manage the tenant's resources, based on group permissions.
  5. Enter the group's name.
    If you selected... Enter...
    Local group Both a display name and a unique name for this group. You can edit the display name later.
    Federated group 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.
  6. Select Continue.
    Step 2 (Manage permissions) appears. The source group's permissions will be selected.
  7. As needed, modify the permissions for this group.
  8. Select Continue.
    Step 3 (Set S3/Swift group policy) appears. If you are duplicating a group for an S3 tenant, the source group's S3 policies will be selected.
  9. As needed, if you are duplicating a group for an S3 tenant, optionally select a different policy from the Add S3 policy radio buttons. If you selected a custom policy, update the JSON string as required.
  10. Select Create group.
