Group Management

  • Updated


Groups offer Filespace administrators a convenient way to provision resources by combining users and defining permission path assignments in a uniform manner.

Administrators can apply or revoke access as required, assigning group permissions throughout the folder hierarchy in read-only or read/write across a subset of users. 

Multiple users and permissions can be defined within each group. 

Groups are administered from within our LucidLink client dashboard through the control panel tab.

Open your LucidLink Application and select the relevant Filespace from the list of available Filespaces. Then navigate to the Control Panel and add your password to open it: 

Please note, as of Filespace format 2.2 the legacy term “Shares” has been changed to “Permissions.”


Groups are configured shares and users with read, read & write permissions. 


Add a Group

1. Provide a group name


2. Add permissions and define access rights and assign users


a. Add permissions


b. Select permissions and user access (read-only or read/write)


c. If necessary add multiple permissions and assign appropriate access rights


d. Assign users 


e. Once complete your Group is finalized. Remove users from the GM10.pngmenu


3. Delete a Group
