The group manager page allows you to add, delete and manage groups on the system. By creating groups, you can set access permissions for various applications in ClearOS. For example, you can create a Flexshare file share that can be managed by a Sales group.


If you install a module that depends on users/groups, this feature will automatically be installed as well.

You can find this feature in the menu system at the following location:


Video Tutorial


There are three distinct parts to define a group:

  • The group name is a simple one-word group, for example sales
  • The description is where you can describe the group in a few words, for example Sales and Marketing Team
  • The group members are the members to include the specified group

The first thing you will see on the group manager page is a summary of existing groups. These are broken into two categories:

  • User Defined Groups
  • Built-in Groups

User Defined Groups

With user defined groups, you can create and manage your own groups.

Built-in Groups

Some pre-defined groups are included in ClearOS and these are summarized in the following table.

allusersAll UsersA group containing all the users on the system
domain_adminsDomain AdminsWindows domain administrators

You can learn more about the purpose of Windows groups in the Windows Networking section of the User Guide.
