Create user groups to control contributor access.

If you are using SAML single sign-on (SSO) authentication, you must first create groups via your identification provider (IdP), then create the same groups in MindTouch as outlined in this article. Note that your MindTouch groups MUST be named exactly as they appear in your IdP. 

How to create your user groups

Create your contributing user groups

  1. On the MindTouch toolbar, select Site tools > Control panel.
  2. In the control panel, under Users & Groups, select Groups.
  3. Click Add Groups.

Name your new groups

In the Groups dialog, enter your group names.

Ampersands (&) in group names are not supported.

Give your groups easily identifiable names such as "Employees" (for general access), "Editors" (for specific user access) or "Compliance" (for specific departmental access).

Assign the Viewer role to your group(s)

  1. Assign the Role of Viewer to your groups.  
  2. Click Add Groups.
