Default Groups

The Configuration > Group Policy > Default Groups page allows you to set the user groups to which the default policy is applied. If Active Directory or eDirectory access has been properly configured, the Available groups list is populated with your organization's Active Directory or eDirectory groups.

If your appliance is configured to access a single-domain Active Directory server, Active Directory group names are displayed in the form "groupname"; if the appliance is configured to access the global catalog of a multidomain Active Directory forest, Active Directory group names are displayed in the form "domain\groupname". If the appliance is configured to integrate with eDirectory, then group names are displayed in eDirectory format (group.context).

Alternatively and additionally, you can create, edit, and delete custom groups. Once the Available groups list is populated to meet your requirements, you can select which groups are denied or allowed access to the internet, depending upon which policy association option you have selected.
