Nest a Group under Another Group
Hub lets you nest a group under another group. A nested group inherits all of the roles that are granted to the group that it is nested under.
Technically, every group you create in Hub is a nested group, as every group is nested under the All Users group. Each new group inherits all of the roles that are assigned to All Users.
Here are some common use cases for nested groups:
Manage access to multiple projects
You need to grant users specific roles in multiple projects.
Grant progressive levels of access
You want to make sure that when you add permissions to a specific role, all of the users who have broader responsibilities are granted this permission as well. For example, you have code reviewers, developers, and project administrators. The reviewers only need read access to the project, while the developers need edit the content. The project administrators need full access rights.
Before you start nesting groups, create all of the groups that you want to work with. For instructions, see Create a Group.
To nest a group under another group:
In the Access Management section of the Administration menu, select Groups.
Select one or more groups in the list.
- Click the Nest group under button and select a group from the drop-down list.
The groups are nested under the group that you selected from the drop-down list.
If you ever want to reverse this operation, just select the nested group in the list and nest it under the All Users group instead.
