Bamboo groups are used to specify which users will have global permissions and plan permissions. They can also be used to specify which users will receive notifications about a plan's build results. You can create and delete as many groups as you need. You will typically create at least one group per project.

A special group called bamboo-admin is automatically created when you install Bamboo. Members of this group have Bamboo administration rights.

To create a group:

  1. Click the  icon in the Bamboo header and choose  Overview.
  2. Click Groups (under 'Security') in the left navigation panel.
  3. Type a name for your new group into Group Name (in the 'Create Group' section). Note that the group name cannot be changed after the group is created.

    In Bamboo, a group name can only contain characters from the following set: a-z, @, . , _ , - , 0-9. You can't create groups that contain invalid character. Similarly, if you try to import of groups that contain invalid characters from an external source, the import of that group will fail.

  4. Select relevant users from the Users to add list. Hold <Ctrl> to select multiple users. You can also add or remove users from the group later if required.
  5. Click Save.
