Create groups

Before you begin

Read Manage users and groups and Use roles and policies to secure resources

To create a group:

  1. In the left pane select Security Realms.
  2. On the Summary of Security Realms page select the name of the realm (for example, myrealm).
  3. On the Settings for Realm Name page select Users and Groups > Groups.
  4. In the Groups table click New.
  5. In the Name field of the Create New Group page, enter the name of the group.

    Groups names are case sensitive and must be unique. BEA recommends using initial capitalization and plural names for groups, for example, Administrators. Do not use commas, tabs or any other charaters in the following comma-separated list:

    < >, #, |, &, ?, ( ), { }

  6. Optionally, in the Description field, enter a short description of the group (for example, Product Managers for Code Examples).
  7. In the Provider drop-down list, select the Authentication provider for the group.

    If multiple WebLogic Authentication providers are configured in the security realm, they will appear in the list. Select which WebLogic Authentication provider’s database should store information for the new group.

  8. Click OK to save your changes and to display the group name in the Group table.

After you finish

After you create a group, you can add users or make the group a member of another group. See Add users to groups

You can nest groups by adding a group to one or more parent groups. See Add groups to other groups
