RoboForm groups are functioning organizational units for the role-based permission sharing of RoboForm files and RoboForm policy deployment.
The Users/Groups tab is where groups are displayed, as well as where they can be created, edited, and where users can be added to them.
During group creation, the administrator will be prompted to set the group's name, default storage and permission type.
The storage type will determine where copies of the data shared in this group can be saved.
A Copy of the RoboForm files assigned to this group will reside on the user's device as well as on your company's account hosted on our servers. This means that users in this group will be able to use the data that has been shared with them even if they are offline.
A copy of the data shared in this group will never be stored on the user’s computer; it will only be stored in the company's account hosted on our servers. This means that users in this group will only be able to use these logins while they are online.
The usage permission will determine the level of access that users in this group will have to the data that is shared with them in this group.
Limited permission will only allow users to Log In with the data shared with them. They will not be able to view any of the details of the login such as the username and password nor will they be able to edit any of this information.
Regular permission user has the ability to view and edit RoboForm files belonging to the group. Any edits that regular users make will be synced to everyone else in the group.
Allowed IP addresses
If any IP addresses are listed here then the data in this group will only be visible if the user is logged in from one of the listed IP addresses or within the specified IP range. Start each address or range from a new line or delimit each entry with a ‘,’ or ‘;’. To list a range of address use a ‘-‘, use a ‘*’ to denote all numbers in that range.
Note: This setting will only prevent users from seeing the data shared in this group. To prevent users from accessing their RoboForm account while outside a desired IP address range, enable the "Allowed IP address Ranges" policy. More information about RoboForm policies can be found here.
Disable visibility from devices
Checking "Disable group visibility from devices (by device type)" will prevent the data in this group from the selected device types.
Note: This setting will only prevent users from seeing the data shared in this group. To prevent users from accessing their RoboForm account from a specific platform enable the "Disable access from devices (by device type)" policy. More information about RoboForm policies can be found here.
Add user to a group
Add users to groups by:
- Selecting the users to be added from the User panel.
- Select the groups the users should be added to from the Group panel.
- Click Add to Group bellow the User panel.
When adding a single user to a group, there will be an option to set their Storage Type and Usage Permissions should they need to be greater or less than the default permission. If multiple users are added at once, they will all be granted the default permissions.
Users in Groups
Once a user has been added to a group, an entry will be generated for them in the "Users in Groups" panel. To populate the Users in Groups panel with entries from a group navigate to the Group panel and click the number in the Users column for the desired group.
A user's permissions in a group can be edited from the Users in Groups panel after it has been populated or they can be removed from a group entirely.
By selecting an entry from this list and pressing "Remove User from Group," the user will be removed from the associated group.
A user's permissions in a group can be edited by selecting "Edit" next to their name in the appropriate entry. From here a user can be delegated the Group Manager permission, making them the admin of their group.
The Group Manager:
The Group Manager has the ability to add new users and data to their group, edit the permissions of users in their group, and edit policies for their group. A Group Manager will not be able to make a policy less restrictive then what an admin as set for the company or that group but a group manager can make policies more restrictive.
Restore Deleted Data
If data is deleted from a group then it can be restored within 30 days through group management. From the group management panel, click the name of the group that the data should be restored to, more settings, and click Restore deleted data.
A folder named Restored will be created in the group and any data deleted in the last 30 days will be placed in this folder.
Add Files to a Group
Files can be added to a group from the "Files" tab. If a file is selected in the Files tab, then it can be added to a group by clicking "ADD TO GROUP." Multiple files can be selected at once by holding down the ctrl key and clicking on each file. Once a file has been added to a group, all users in the group will have access to the data with the appropriate permissions applied.
