Add a Group

In AuthPoint, user groups are how you define what your users have access to. Groups are assigned access policies to specify which resources require authentication and which authentication method to use (OTP, Push, QR code) for the users that are in that group.

Because groups specify how users authenticate, no user can be added to more than one group. This prevents potential conflicts between the access policies of each group.

You must add at least one group before you can add users to AuthPoint.

To add a group to AuthPoint, in the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Groups.
  2. Click Add Group.

  1. (Optional) Add access policies for your resources to the group:
    1. In the Access Policy section, click Add Policy.

      The Add Policy dialog box appears.
    2. From the Resource drop-down list, select the resource you want to require authentication for.
    3. (Optional) To require users enter their password before they authenticate for this resource, select the Require Password Authentication slider.
    4. Select which authentication options users in this group are allowed to choose from when they authenticate. For more information about authentication methods, see About Authentication.

    For RADIUS resources, you can only choose OTP or push. RADIUS resources cannot use the QR code authentication option.

    1. Click Add.

  1. (Optional) Configure or add safe locations to the group. For more information, see About Safe Locations.
    1. In the Safe Locations section, click Add Safe Location. If you have already created a safe location, select your safe location from the list.
    2. In the Name text box, type a name to identify this safe location. This helps you identify the safe location when you want to add it to other groups.
    3. In the IP Mask text box, type an IP address or netmask that defines the range of IP addresses you want to consider as a safe location. You can specify multiple IP addresses and ranges in one safe location.
    4. Click Save.
      The Add Safe Location window closes and the safe location is saved and added to your group.
  2. Click Save.
