Managing groups

Globus groups, like Globus accounts, are consistent across all systems connected to Globus. Globus supports subgroup hierarchies, group and member visibility policies, and custom group admission and member verification workflows.

Click Groups in the left-side command pane to open the "Your Groups" page. You will see a list of all the groups you are a member of, including those you administer or manage. To search for a group you belong to, type part of its name in the Filter groups field above the list.

Click Create new group to create a group.

Globus

Enter a name for the group and then click the Create Group button. You can also enter a description that tells prospective members about the group but we recommend leaving the "Administrator" option the default. In this example we are going to create the group Demo Group.

After creating a group, Globus will automatically display the group page. To navigate back to group page at a later stage, click Groups and select the relevant group from the "Your Groups" page. You may optionally type the name (or part of the name) of the group in the "Filter groups" field.

You can invite others to the group by entering their username or Globus identity. Please note that the user being invited must already have a Globus account before they can be invited to a group.
