Create user and manage groups

In Aida, the group is a grouping of actions that the user associated with that group can perform within the system. Basically the types of action that can be associated with a group are:

  • View
  • Add/Edit
  • Delete

To define and manage groups in Aida, it is sufficient to use the Users and Groups-> Group Manager menu

Aida homepage

Once you have access to group management from the main menu, the administration screen will show the list of active groups in the system:
