A FusionAuth Group has a few use cases.

The first use may be to simply logically group one or more users within a Tenant. Once a User is a member of a Group they may be identified as a member of the Group and retrieved using the Group APIs.

The second reason you may wish to use a FusionAuth group is to manage Application Role assignment. A Group may be assigned roles from one or more Applications, a member of this Group will be dynamically assigned these roles if they have a registration for the Application.

For example you could create a Group called Admin, and assign this group the admin role from each of your applications.

Create a Group

Click on Settings Groups from the main menu to add a Group. At a minimum, you must provide a Name for the Group and the Tenant it belongs to.

You may apply Application roles from the various Applications in this Group’s Tenant.
