Create user groups

You can create user groups for an organization in 10Duke SysAdmin.

To provide their users with access to licenses, an organization must have at least one user group.

As a shortcut, you can also create simple user groups with a name while you’re authorizing license usage in an entitlement.


  • By default, each new organization is created with a user group of type “employees”. An organization can only have one user group of this type.

Before you start:

To create a user group for an organization:

  1. In the left sidebar, go to IDENTITY > Organizations.

  2. In the organization table, select the organization and select Actions > Manage user groups.

    The organization’s user group table opens.

  3. Select Actions > Create group. A dialog opens.

  4. In Name, define a name for the group.

  5. In Type, select a type for the group.

    • employees: A group type to be used for the organization’s employees.

      This group type has built-in default authorization logic: 10Duke Enterprise automatically assigns the built-in role “Organization Member” to a user who is added to this group.

      Users in this group have more access to the organization’s data in API interactions compared to the licenseConsumers group. For example, they are able to query information related to their organization and to the users in all of their organization’s user groups.

    • licenseConsumers: A group type to be used for (non-employee) users to whom you want to give access to the organization’s licenses.

      This group type doesn’t have any built-in logic. It’s an example group that can be used, for example, to group users who are external to the organization but allowed to consume the organization’s licenses.

    • Define a custom group type by entering the name in the field.

      You can use custom types to identify groups of users, for example, for specific customer or business cases.

  6. Click Save to create the group.

  7. Optional: Define a description for your new group:

    1. Click the group in the table. Its details open below the table.

    2. On the Details tab, write a short description in Description.

    3. Click Save.
