Adding user groups

You can create groups for users who are enabled for the
CylancePROTECT
app and for
CylanceGATEWAY
users. 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.
You can assign policies to a group from the group settings page or from the policy page . 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 synchronizes with the membership list in the directory. For more information, see Configure onboarding and offboarding.
  • Local groups are created and maintained in the management console. You can assign any local user or directory user to a local group.
