Setting up Security Groups within Space Connect

This article will explain how to create Security Groups that are required for Space Connect


NB: Only global and user management administrators have access to the relevant permissions to create, edit, or delete security groups.

How to Add a Security Group for Company Web Admin

Step 1:

  • Sign in to the Microsoft 365 admin center, go to the Groups > Groups page.
  • Within the Groups page, select Add a group.

  • On Choose a group type page, choose Security.

  • The name of the group needs to be SpaceConnectCompanyWebAdmin

Click Add to save the new group, click Close to return to the list view 

Step 2:

Once you have created the administrator active directory group, the relevant admin users are required to be added to the group. These users will have access to Space Connect's administrator features.

  • From the list of groups, search for SpaceConnectCompanyWebAdmin group and open. This will then open a dialogue showing the list of owners and members.
  • Click on View all and manage members > + Add members. Search for users to be added to the group. Once complete, click Save and then Close.

Please ensure the Global Administrator account that will be used to accept permissions is added to the SpaceConnectCompanyWebAdmin security group!

The group is now updated to include the selected members.  This can be repeated whenever needed to add additional users. 

If you would like to restrict your users who won't need any access to Space Connect Admin or Booking portals, a general security group will need to be added. Please follow the below for instructions on how to do this.

Please also notify your support@spaceconnect.co, as a change in the configuration will need to be done.
