Groups - BloomReach Experience - Open Source CMS

This article covers a Hippo CMS version 10. There's an updated version available that covers our most recent release.

Groups

Groups are sets of users. The members of a group inherit the permissions of the group.

Groups Configuration

The groups are stored in the repository as children of the node /hippo:configuration/hippo:groups. The members of the group are stored in the multi valued property hipposys:members.
