Creating and managing user groups

A user group is a collection of related users who share common properties. Administering users as a group is more efficient than administering individual users because properties can be added, changed, or removed for all members of the group at the same time. Users can belong to more than one group at a time. You can assign an IT policy, profiles, and apps in the management console when you create or update the settings for a user group.
You can create two types of user groups:
  • Directory-linked groups link to groups in your company directory. Only directory user accounts can be members of a directory-linked group.
  • Local groups are created and maintained in 
    BlackBerry UEM
     and can have local user accounts and directory user accounts assigned to them.
After you create user groups, you can define a group as a member of another group. For more information, see Add nested groups to a user group.
