Manage groups

The Groups page displays a list of all groups configured in your organization for specific purposes. This includes two types of membership information:

  • Groups that were added via automated provisioning. Those groups were imported from your directory service, such as Okta or Microsoft Azure directory, and synchronized with ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč.
  • Groups that were created manually in ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč.

Groups let you manage user permissions to resources in bulk. You can, for example, set up a particular group that includes accounts of users belonging to the same department. Next, configure a policy that forces members of that group to comply with the same set of authentication requirements. Finally, associate the policy with this group and the same set of applications. With those settings, you assign all users belonging to the group with the necessary access permissions and requirements.
Groups can overlap as a given user can belong to more than one group. For this reason, apart from your group policies, you may also apply more granular policies. See configure custom policies to learn more.

The Groups list allows you to switch to the group profile page by clicking the group's name displayed in the Name column. When you're on the group profile page, you can assign or edit an adequate set of permissions for a selected group.

Use the menu provided on the top of the page to perform any of these group actions:
