Authorization Manager, Manage Memberships

Manage group memberships using Authorization Manager.

Members are organized into groups. You can only add and remove members to and from groups in which you have privileges. 

Add/Import a Member/List to a Group

    Navigate to the group where you want to add a member. We recommend that you use the Team Group in the Root folder, this location will be provided to you by the IAMU team or Security.

    Open the Members group and Click +Add Members.  You can click on the "import a list of members". Even if you are adding one employee, the "import a list of members" is an easier method of adding employees to the group.

    Click Add. 

    Remove a Member from a Group

    You can only remove individuals or groups with a direct membership in your group. When you remove a group from your group, you remove all its indirect members too.

    Navigate to the Team Group in the Root Folder you were given by IAMU or Security.  In the Members tab, select the member(s) you want to remove, click "Remove selected members" in the left-hand corner above "Entity name", see screen shot below.
