Adding Local Groups

Administrators can create IBM Aspera Shares local groups, in which all users who belong to the group have the same Shares authorizations and belong to the local database, rather than to a directory service.

  1. From the Admin page, click Accounts > Groups > New.
  2. Name the new local group and click Create Group.
  3. Optional: Select Login to enable all users in the group to log in to Shares and click Update Permissions.
  4. Select Admin to authorize all users in the group as admins and click Update Permissions.
After creating a group, you are redirected to the group's Security settings. From this page, you can add users to the group, authorize shares, configure transfer settings, and view the group's activity logs. For more information, see Configure Local Group Settings.
