Groups

Groups are implemented for providing a way of grouping users logically to facilitate management of privileges: privileges can be granted to, or revoked from, a group as a whole.

 

Note: Since PostgreSQL 8.1 a role system was implemented to replace users and groups. For more information see Roles.

 

 

New groups are created within Create Group Wizard. In order to run this wizard you should either

 

select the Groups list or any object from that list and then use the Create New Group item from the popup menu

or

open the server in Server Editor and the Groups tab there and press Insert or select the Create New Group item from the popup menu (Alternatively, use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

 

 

 

Groups are edited within Group Editor. In order to open the editor you should either

 

select the group for editing in the explorer tree (type the first letters of the group name for quick search);
select the Edit Group item from the popup menu

or

open the server in Server Editor and the Groups tab there;
select the group to edit;
press the Enter key or select the Edit Group item from the popup menu (alternatively, you can use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

 

 

 

To drop the existing group:

 

select the group to drop in the explorer tree;
select the Drop Group item from the popup menu

or

open the server in Server Editor and the Groups tab there;
select the group to drop;
press the Delete key or select the Drop Group item from the popup menu

(alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar)

 

and confirm dropping in the dialog window.
