NetReg: Group Owner Permission Mapping

Overview

The new NetReg uses Active Directory (AD) groups to manage NetReg Group membership.

You can use a new AD group (which can be requested from the form) or an existing one. Current NetReg groups with mixed permissions among their members must be split out into separate AD groups to assign appropriate permissions. If creating a new AD Group, the HelpDesk will use a standard naming convention to indicate permissions:

  • Prefix: “NR_”
  • Suffix: “_RO” – Read Only, “_RW” – Read/Write
  • Example: NR_<groupname>_RW

Group Owner Permission Mapping

  1. Group Owners will use the Admin Login option in NetReg to identify any relevant existing NetReg groups they manage. (Instructions are in the KB).
  2. Next, visit the IP Manager Request (IPMGR) form and select the “NetReg Permissions” drop-down option to indicate the AD group(s) to map by permissions.
  3. Enter the name of your NetReg group. 
  4. Select whether you have an existing AD Group to map.
    1. If yes, enter the existing AD Group Name and select the desired NetReg Permissions. 
    2. If no, enter the desired AD Group Name and select the desired NetReg Permissions. 
    • As noted above, current NetReg groups with mixed permissions among their members must be split out into separate AD groups to assign appropriate permissions. E.g., One AD Group with Read-Only and one AD Group with Read/Write. You must submit the form twice to map two AD Groups to one NetReg group.
  5. You may also use this form to request the deletion of a group or the assignment/transfer of its management; submit any special requests or additional questions via its Description box.
  6. To be removed as a group member, members must contact the group’s manager directly.
