Editing a Custom User Group

  1. Click the name of the custom group that you want to edit.
    Note
    Custom groups, which can be edited, are indicated by a Sophos icon (); Active Directory and eDirectory groups, which cannot be edited, are indicated by a directory icon ().
    The Group Editor dialog box is displayed with the selected list properties displayed.
    Note
    The group changes that you make in this window are also displayed on the Reports > Options > Reporting Groups page.
  2. Optionally, in the top text box, enter a new name for the group.
  3. Optionally, use any of the following methods to change the members for the selected custom group:
    1. Click the Groups tab , highlight the groups that you want to add to 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 add to your custom group, and click the double-right arrow (>>) to move the selected users into the Selected Entries list.
    3. 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 Manual Entries list.

  4. Once you have modified the name, or 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 modified custom group listed in the Available groups list.

  5. Click Apply.
