An Administrator manages or creates new groups and edits existing groups.

There are two reasons for using groups:

1. Groups can simplify assignment of applications and roles. Bulk app-role assignment can be achieved by adding users to groups and then assigning applications and roles to the groups. With the use of SSO this can be further streamlined if group memberships are sourced from a remote identity management system.

2. Applications can leverage groups for categorizing users as per their own custom requirements. Administrators should work with application developers to ensure that groups are properly configured and populated.
