Adding a group

The first step when adding a group is to choose a group domain type (such as local, Active Directory, Qlik_Sense) from the domain dropdown, then select Add Group. This action opens the group administration panel.

Note that Active Directory groups can only be imported into Qlik Catalog (not added through the UI).
