Creating groups

You can create a group at the top level of the groups hierarchy, or as a subgroup of an existing group. A subgroup inherits access to all the licenses of its parent group or groups. (To import and export groups, use the Administrator Manager in Spotfire Analyst.)

Note that interited licenses are disabled by default, and will need to be enabled.

For more information, see Groups and licenses.


  1. Log in to Spotfire Server and click Users & Groups.
  2. On the Groups page, click Create group.
  3. On the Create group page, enter a name for the group.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To create a group at the top level, click Save.
    • To create a subgroup, click Add to groups, select the check box for each group to which you want to add the new group, and then click Add.

What to do next

(Optional) Assign preferences to the group. Preferences are set in the Administration Manager in Spotfire Analyst.
