Assigning users to Policy Groups

When you assign a user to a policy group, all policies applied to that particular group will automatically apply to the user. You can assign only one policy group to a user. When you try to assign a different policy group to the same user, the new policy group will replace the currently-assigned policy group. You can assign a policy group to both new and existing users.

Additionally, you can add multiple users to a group by importing a CSV file containing user information. For more information, see Importing and exporting users.


Note: By default users are not assigned to any policy group and have access to all Cisco WebEx Messenger features. After you assign a policy group to users, they are governed by the policies associated with that policy group.

For more information about applying policies to groups, see Applying policies to groups.
