Panel Virtual groups

Here you can add virtual groups that do not have anything to do with LDAP. This is useful:

  • If you have developed your own JAAS module where you want to match the login to anything other than LDAP (e.g. a database).
  • If you have made an SAML connection
  • If you use CAS as the login method, all users who log in with this method will belong to a virtual group called CAS. (The identification name must be CAS for the virtual group).

It requires that you upload your virtual groups to the server if you are using SAML and are to log on to several different websites on the server.

In SiteVision Cloud, you create Virtual groups via Website settings -> Virtual groups.
