Groups in the Proget system are used for quick and convenient allocation of policies, profiles and applications for many users at the same time.
You can create many groups with different settings. One user can belong to several groups, as long as there are no conflicts between groups (i.e. they do not have policies or profiles of the same type).
Should you try to add a user to a group with conflicting policies, you will be informed about the conflicts in the dialog.
The default groups in the Proget system are administrators (admins) and users (users).
To create a new group, go to the
Groups tab, and then click the
Add group button (All configurations can also be changed after creating a group).
The add group wizard will appear, where you have to enter the necessary information.
In the first window you will have to give a

On the next screen you can choose previously created profiles to be added to your group (adding profiles is not required). Add profiles by selecting a category and then a specific profile.

In order for your newly created groups to have any effect, it is necessary to assign users to them, preferably users that you will want to manage in a similar way.
Adding users to a group can be done in two ways:
A single user can be added to the group in his card tab. To do this, go to the
Users tab, then search for the user you want to add to the group. Click on the row with his credentials.
You will be redirected to the selected user’s card tab. Click on the
Edit groups button to proceed.
The available groups will be displayed in the field on the left. To add a new group to the user, double-click on it or highlight it and click on the arrow button.
You can add multiple groups to one user. Take note that you will receive an error if a group has profiles or policies which are in conflict with profiles already assigned to the user.

Field selection options button on the bottom of the screen.
A table will be displayed in which you can select the groups to which users are to be assigned.
After selecting groups with no conflicts with currently assigned groups, you can click the
Submit button. After correctly adding groups, information about the completed task will appear.
The users we assigned to the group will now be displayed in the group’s tab. To check this, go to the
Groups tab and then select the group.
A group administrator only has access to the users and devices, which are assigned to his group. Users outside of his group are not visible to him. This feature allows you to give team leaders and managers more control over their subordinates without giving them access to devices or users outside of their authority.
To assign an administrator to a group, first create a new group, which will be assigned only to the group administrator. Let’s name it
Group admin. After creating the group, assign it to the user you want to make the group administrator. You should also assign the group admin to the group he will be in charge of, otherwise he won’t have the possibility to influence his own devices.
After configuring the groups of our administrator, go to the
Settings tab. You will be automatically redirected to the
Add a role to create a new role for your group administrator.
Choose a name for the role and select the remaining options as to your liking. After you’re done, click on
You will be redirected to the list of permissions for this role. Select the
Manage groups option to turn on the group administrator feature for this role. After that, click on Add group to assign a group to the role.
An input field will appear, where you can select the group you wish to assign. Enter the name of the group and select it from the dropdown menu.
If you wish, you can assign more than one group to a role. Simply click an
Add group again to assign another group.
Assign the permissions you want to give to your group administrator. Take note that the group administrator feature only restricts access to other groups via the
Devices tabs. Other tabs are not affected and still give access to information of users from other groups.
After you’re done with assigning permissions to the role, click on
Now select the role you just created and click on the
Manage groups action.
Select the group your group administrator is assigned to (in our case this would be
Group admin) and click on
The user has now been assigned as the admin of the group.
