Configuring groups

The Central Tool for Managing Group Access

Series25 Group Administration is a central place from which 25Live Administrators can set up and configure any aspect of the 25Live environment related to a group of user members (functional security, access to master definitions, preferences, and so on). You can create groups with their own unique set of enabled actions and characteristics, and administrators have the unique ability to aggregate permissions into new options for even easier security management.

The initial release of Group Administration is limited to Functional Security. Future releases will be expanded to include other areas of group administration, such as specifying preferences.

How does Group Administration fit into Series25?

The Series25 Group Administration tool allows you to set up any number of security groups whose membership comprises users with a similar job/use profile, including defining groups for internal vs external users, each with its own unique set of security access and assignment privileges. This new tool replaces parts of the 25Live Administration Utility with new functionality, a fresh look, and advanced options.

How to Access Series25 Group Administration

If your institution has chosen to test this new tool, make sure Object Security is turned on in your Series25 environment and that those users who will be testing the Group tool have this functional security:

  • In the 25Live Administration Utility: Contacts > Security Groups = Can view user lists, change security group permissions, assign members to groups, make users active or inactive, create and delete security groups, and enable/disable object security.
  • The Group Administration equivalent is Admin 11.0 (View User Lists and Change Security Configurations) which must be set to "Yes."

If you are testing the Group tool, we recommend you use your test instance. Contact your Account Manager (seriesimplementation@collegenet.com) if you want to become a tester.
