Managing local groups

In this article you will learn how to manage your local groups. On the other hand, to learn what to consider when managing groups imported from Azure Active Directory, see our help article Managing Azure AD Groups.

Assign local groups to users retrospectively

When adding single users (Enter single user) and for Import users from .csv file you can select or specify the group directly during import. When users are imported from an Active Directory via LDAP the group must, however, be assigned later:

  • Import the users, as described here.
  • Under Administration→ Groups select a group (left arrow in illus.) and then click on Assign Users (middle arrow in illus.).
  • Then select all the users you want to add to the group (right arrow in illus.) and confirm with OK.
Note! Alternatively, you can specify one (or more) group(s) to which the users will be automatically added during the import.

Note! As soon as a user is subsequently added to a group, all properties of the group are automatically rolled out for him/her. Manual rollout is no longer necessary.

Change local group

  • Select a group (left arrow in illus.).
  • You can now use Assign Users or Unassign Users to switch the group membership of the users.

After that, select Assign to assign either policies, profiles, apps, managed configurations, or an app store account to the group. For more information about this, see our help article Assign settings in user and group management.
