Groups in EPiServer CMS

It is common to use EPiServer CMS’s own management of groups and users if part of your website is an extranet. You can also make groups and give them specific read access rights to parts of the website. It is also common practice to use EPiServer’s management if the website is operated by an operations supplier. In those cases the server cannot be accessed in the same way, so a simple solution for management via the web browser is required.

Create groups in EPiServer as follows:

  1. Select Administer Groups on the Admin tab.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Enter the name and description of the group.
  4. Click Save.

Note that the groups you create in EPiServer CMS are only available here. It is not possible to create groups in EPiServer CMS in such a way that they are also created in Windows.
