Groups Page: Overview

A high-level overview of the Groups page in RiskSense.

The Groups page allows a user to create organizational (and permission-based) folders within RiskSense. By default, RiskSense places all new assets into the Default Group. RiskSense recommends creating several groups to move assets into, leaving the Default Group as a place to quickly find new hosts/assets as they are scanned and surfaced in RiskSense. You can create groups based on asset type, location, team, etc. Assets can belong to multiple groups.

Who can use the Groups page?

The ability to view the Groups page is available to users with the Core Read IAM privilege. The ability to create, modify, delete groups and view all groups regardless of membership is housed in the following IAM privilege:

  • Group Control: Create, modify, and delete groups. Can view all groups regardless of their group membership.

This privilege is provided in the Administrator and Data Manager Foundational Roles and the Group Owner Supplemental Role. It can also be added to a custom IAM role.
