Auto-creation of groups

Groups are used for access control of users, and can optionally be automatically created from idp-groups.

To enable or disable auto-creation of groups, in the management console navigate to the Settings page.

In the Groups tab, manage the following setting:

Groups are used for access control of users, and can optionally be automatically created from idp-groups.

Property Description
Enable auto-creation of groups

When enabled, groups are inherited from the identity provider so that access can be granted to the same groups of users that exist in the IdP. This simplifies access administration compared to granting access to one user at a time.

It is required that you use single sign-on and have administrative access to your IdP to configure groups.

Note that new IdP groups will show up in Qlik Sense Enterprise as users log in (or log in again) to the Qlik Sense Enterprise tenant. IdP groups are not imported all at the same time. Instead, IdP groups are discovered at login time. Further, only groups associated with users in Qlik Sense Enterprise will be available as described earlier.
