How do I manage members in a group?

To add or remove members from a group:

  1. Open the Group, click Members icon, then click Manage.

    Note: If you don't see the Manage button, the group is managed externally (for example, through LDAP), so you can't change the membership through Oracle Social Network.

  2. In the Manage Members dialog, move groups and people to the right column to add them or to the left column to remove them. Use Ctrl+Click to select more than one person or group.

    You can also search by entering part of a person's or group's name, and select them from the list that pops up.

    If your administrator has configured the system to allow you to invite users, you can add someone who isn't an Oracle Social Network user. Enter the person's email address in the search box, then click Invite email_address. When asked if you want to send an invitation, click OK. When you save your changes an email will be sent to the person inviting the person to join Oracle Social Network.

    By default, you see a list of your contacts. Click a tab to change your view:

    • Contacts icon Contacts—View a list of your contacts.

    • Groups icon Groups—View a list of your groups.


  • You can't add outside users to a group. Outside users' names appear in purple text, and they have icons (Outside user avatar) after their names. For more information on outside users, see Outside Users.

  • Some system configurations prevent you from removing yourself from a group. For example, you can't remove yourself from a group that is synced up with a group in your LDAP directory.

  • If you remove yourself from a group, you also remove yourself from every item the group is a member of. After you remove yourself from an item, you can't add yourself back in. You must ask another member to do that for you.
