C.7. User Groups

User groups are collections of users inside the user interface. User groups allow you to apply a consistent set of permissions to a group of users at the same time, with any changes in permissions to the user group being automatically applied to all users that belong to that user group.
You can create user groups to apply a set of roles to a subset of the users in the user interface.
