Creating a Custom User Group

  1. In the Available Groups list, click Create.

    The Group Editor dialog box is displayed.

    Note
    The groups that are added in this window are also added to the Reports > Options > Reporting Groups page.
  2. In the top text box, enter a name for the group.
  3. Use at least one of the following methods to select the members of the new custom group:
    1. Click the Groups tab, highlight the groups that you want to include in your custom group, and click the double-right arrow (>>) to move the selected groups into the Selected Entries list.
    2. Click the Users tab highlight the users that you want to include in your custom group, and click the double-right arrow (>>) to move the selected users into the Selected Entries list.
    3. Optionally, to remove a group or user from the Selected Entries list, highlight the item(s) that you want to remove from the custom group, and click the double-left arrow (<<).
    4. To add manual entries that are not listed in the Groups or Users lists, do the following:
      1. In the text box in the Manual Entries section, enter a username, IP address, or an IP address range, and click Add.

        Usernames must be in the form DOMAIN\username for Active Directory and user.context for eDirectory. IP address ranges must be in CIDR format.

        Important
        The Web Appliance will interpret any dotted quad followed by a slash and a number less than 33 as a CIDR range. This creates the possibility that a URL entered as an IP address followed by a numbered directory from 0 to 32 would be improperly treated as a CIDR range. To avoid this possibility, always enter URLs to numbered directories using fully qualified domain names rather than IP addresses.

        After clicking Add, the entry is displayed in the Manual Entries list.

      2. Optionally, to delete an item from the list, select the check box to the right of the entry that you want to delete, and click Delete.

        The selected item is removed from the Entries list.

  4. Once you have the list of group members that you want in the Selected Entries and Manual Entries lists, click Save.

    The Group Editor dialog box closes and you are returned to the Configuration > Group Policy > Default Groups page with the newly created custom group shown in the Available Groups list.

  5. Click Apply.
