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. When you assign policies to user groups, the policies apply to all members of the group.
Users can belong to more than one group. If a user belongs to two or more groups that are assigned different policies, the highest ranked of the assigned polices is applied to the user.
You can create two types of user groups:
  • Directory groups link to groups in your company directory. The membership of the group in
    BlackBerry Gateway
    synchronizes with the membership list in the directory. For more information, see Configure onboarding and offboarding.
  • Local groups are created and maintained in
    BlackBerry Gateway
    . You can assign any local user or directory user to a local group.
