Add a Group (Master Data Services)

Applies to: SQL Server - Windows only Azure SQL Managed Instance

Add a group to the Groups list in Master Data Manager to begin the process of assigning permission to the Web application. Before a user in the group can access Master Data Manager, you must give the group permission to one or more functional areas and model objects.


To perform this procedure:

  • You must have permission to access the Users and Group Permissions functional area.

To add a group

  1. In Master Data Manager, click User and Group Permissions.

  2. On the Users page, from the menu bar, click Manage Groups.

  3. Click Add groups.

  4. Type the group's name preceded by the Active Directory domain name or by the server computer's name, as in domain\group_name or computer\group_name.

  5. Optionally, click Check names.

  6. Click OK.


    When the user first accesses Master Data Manager, the user's name is added to the Master Data Manager list of users.
