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:
- Click theicon in the Bamboo header and choose Overview.
- Click Groups (under 'Security') in the left navigation panel.
- 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.
- 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.
- Click Save.
