Change a group into a security group
After you add a security label to a group, it takes on the qualities of a security group. This process adds security features to any type of group and locks down membership permissions, but it doesn’t remove any other features of the original group.
On the Admin console Home page, go to Groups.
- Click on the name of a groupGroup InformationLabels.
- Check the Security box.
- Click Save.
This action is permanent.
The group now has a security label in the groups list.
You can enforce policies using dynamic groups by first adding a security label to them.
For example, you might set policies for everyone at your company who works in a specific geographic location.
- Create a dynamic group of everyone with that location in their user profiles.
As employees move and change their location in their profile, the system automatically adds or removes them from the dynamic group.
- Add a security label to the dynamic group.
Doing so allows you to apply policies to dynamic groups.
- Create a policy and choose which policies take precedence by following the steps in Customize service settings with configuration groups.
