The easiest way to understand groups is to think of them as departments. Groups allow you to split your user base into smaller pieces that can be more easily managed. For example, you can use privileges to grant a user the ability to manage all users within a specific group. You can also use groups to more easily filter and search for users or to apply bulk user updates, conditional mappings, or group security policies.

Creating Groups

    1. To create a new group, sign in to your OneLogin admin portal and go to Users > Groups, then click New Group.

    2. Name the group and choose a Security policy to manage the group, then click Save.

Group Admins

Group admins have the ability to manage all users within a given group, including adding, removing, and editing them, changing their password or granting them a temporary one-time password (OTP), applying mappings, policies, or other bulk updates, and revoking their user privileges. A group can be managed by multiple users, and a single user can manage more than one group.

To create a group admin, open the user and grant them the Manage group privilege. Once privileged, they will see the Users menu in the admin portal, even if editing these users is not specifically in their administrative scope.

Group Members

You can add members to a group individually on their user management page, or in bulk by applying a mapping.

Note: When looking at Users > Groups, the group membership counts may be inaccurate if you have recently added or removed users. The group count is calculated hourly rather than updated immediately, so the values displayed may not be current until the next hourly update.
