Setting Up Groups

You can set up transfer settings based on your system user groups. If users belong to a group and do not have individual transfer settings, then the group's transfer settings will be applied. System user groups must be created prior to being added to Enterprise Server, they cannot be created in the GUI. Follow the steps below to add user groups to Enterprise Server.

  1. Identify or create the user group(s) that you would like to add.
    For information on creating user groups, see your operating system documentation.
  2. Launch the Aspera server as Administrator.
    Log into your computer with your Administrator account. Click Start menu > All Programs > Aspera > Enterprise Server . Right click Enterprise Server and click Run as administrator.

  4. Add the user group to your Aspera server.
