Create user groups to control page access

This article outlines the steps for creating user groups in MindTouch to maximize online visibility while allowing control over contributor access to your public-facing pages and sections.

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

To create user groups that will have access to create, edit or manage specific pages or sections of your public-facing content, follow these steps:
