In this tutorial, we will review the steps for adding a specific rules to a group on a SilverStripe website.

Reasons for Grouping:
The user management of a website is an important task. You may have hundreds or even thousands of users and you may need to apply different set of permissions for them. Fortunately, you can group users on your website together and apply the same set of permissions for all of them. By doing this, this will allow you to manage those users easily and you will not have to apply the changes for each one of them separately.

This task alone will save you a lot of time and make the management of users on your website a breeze. Here are the step-by-step instructions:

Login to your SilverStripe administrator dashboard and click on Security on the left menu.

Click on the Groups button on the top-right corner of the screen.

Select the group that you wish to assign a role to. In this example, I will choose "New Designer".

NOTE: For Role creation, kindly refer this tutorial.

Select the Roles option from the top-right corner of the screen and search for the role that you wish to apply. In this example, I will select "Access to CMS Sections". Note that "Access to CMS Sections" was created by me and contain several rules.

Click on the Apply Changes button below to keep the changes. The system will automatically update the configuration of your website.
