Maintain Groups

Security groups make it easy to configure sets of permissions and apply them to a number of users in one action.

Notes:

  • You must have Security - Manage Users permission to manage user groups; the initial Admin administrator automatically has this permission.
  • You do not define groups as group logins with passwords. If you intend to use a group login, you can define a single-user login and password that all group members use (that is, Enterprise Architect allows multiple logins under one user ID).

Set Up a Security Group

To set up a security group, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the Project | Security | Manage Groups menu option. The Security Groups dialog displays.
     
    MaintainGroups
     
  2. In the Group Name and Description fields, type the security group name and a description of the group.
  3. Click on the Save button.

Note:

You can transport these security group definitions between models, using the Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options on the Tools menu.
