An app group is a group that enables you to manage the permissions of multiple apps collectively. By default, an app belongs to the Public group. For more information on App Groups, please see App Groups.

  4. Click Save.
  5. Click Update App.
Please note:
  • When moving an activated app to another app group, the change in app group will apply to the activated app after you click Save. Any setting change, other than moving the app group, will not apply to the activated app until you click Update App.
  • If an App belongs to a Space, the app group assigned cannot be changed.
  • If an App belongs to a Private Space, regardless of the app permission settings, the app is not available to users who do not have access to the space.
