Groups are used to simplify access management when there are many users.
Groups created are then selected for the respective users who are part of the group (see chapter "Users").
The following adjustable parameters are available for a group:
|*Group name||Name of the group|
|Home page||Home page for users belonging to the group|
|Logo||Logo to be displayed (see chapter "General settings")|
|Global permissions||Global permissions for users of the group|
|Automatic logout||The account is logged out after x minutes. If -1, default setting is used|
Global permissions are used to create users where the access level applies globally to all pages.
The following global access levels exist:
|NOACCESS||No global permissions|
|VIEW||Global viewing permissions|
|BASIC||Global authorization to change parameters of level 2|
|ADVANCED||Global authorization to change parameters of level 3|
|SYSTEM||Change/Create Pages, Manage IO-devices, and Tag lists|
|ADMIN||Global Administrative Permissions|
|PARENT||(used by the system)|
