Groups

Group list screen

  represents a group of users from a single directory (created by a synchronization or defined within WorkflowGen).
  represents a virtual group of users from a single directory filtered by an SQL-like query (directory filter).

Associated users

Users are associated with a group only when the group is saved (at creation or when manually re-saved). If synchronized, the user list is refreshed at the time of the synchronization. If no synchronization has been defined for that directory, users in the virtual groups of that directory will not be updated automatically.
