Assign Users to a Security Group

You can manually add users to a Security Group. If you have SAML or LDAP configured for your system, you can map Active Directory groups to a Security Group and automatically add users to CSM from those groups.

Users can be assigned to only one Security Group at a time. When you reassign an existing user to a Security Group, you remove that user from the first Security Group. The Security Group is stored in the user's profile. You can assign a user to a Security Group when you edit a user profile or when you edit a Security Group.

If you have SAML or LDAP configured, you can mapping Active Directory groups to CSM Security Groups. See Map LDAP Groups to CSM Security Groups and Map SAML Security Groups to CSM Security Groups.

  2. In the Group drop-down list, select the Security Group for which you want to define rights (example: Admin).
