To Edit Security Groups

You can't edit the -1 security group

You can’t edit the functional security rights of the System Administrators (-1) security group, but you can change its group members.


  1. In the 25Live Administration Utility, select the Security tab.
  2. Select the Manage Functional Security Group task tab.
  3. Highlight the security group(s) you want to edit, and click Edit. To highlight multiple security groups, hold down the Shift key and click each security group.

    If you choose to edit multiple security groups, be aware that all and only the changes you make will be applied to all the security groups you select for edit. When in doubt, edit security groups one at a time.



  4. If you highlighted one security group:

    1. Edit the security group name and/or description as needed.
    2. Edit the functional security rights of the group as needed by clicking the Rights “EDIT” link, expanding each of the rights areas you want to edit, and modifying the rights in each area as needed. Note: "Revert to Saved" reloads the last saved copy of the security group's functional security settings.
    3. Edit the security group members as needed by clicking the Members “EDIT” link and following these instructions:

      To move a member to another security group, choose the group from the Change Group drop-down.

      To add new members, click Add New Member, find the user by full or partial name, and repeat as needed to add more members.

  5. If you highlighted more than one security group:

    1. Edit the description of all selected groups as needed by checking the Description box, then entering or modifying the description as needed.

    2. Edit the functional security rights of all selected groups as needed by checking the Rights box, expanding each of the rights areas you want to edit, and modifying the rights in each area as needed.

  6. Click Save Changes.

To Copy a Security Group

Copying a security group copies its functional security, object security, and assignment policy rights, but not its members since each user can be in only one security group.

  1. In the 25Live Administration Utility, select the Security tab.
  2. Select the Manage Functional Security Group task tab.
  3. Highlight the security group you want to copy, and click Copy.
  4. Enter a name for the new security group, and enter or edit the description as needed.
  5. To edit the functional rights of the new group, click the Rights “EDIT” link, then modify the rights as needed.
  6. Add members to the group.
    1. Click Add a New Member.
    2. Find a user you want to add by full or partial name.
    3. If multiple users are returned, choose the user you want from the drop-down list.
    4. Repeat these steps to add additional members to the group.
  7. Click Add Security Group.

To Delete a Security Group

  1. In the 25Live Administration Utility, select the Security tab.
  2. Select the Manage Functional Security Group task tab.
  3. Highlight the security group you want to delete, and click Delete. You can only delete one security group at a time.
  4. Click Delete Security Group to confirm.
  5. Click Manage More Security Groups to return to the Manage Security Groups page.
