These docs cover how to manage your Identities and Groups.
An Identity refers to an account which you have used for login — it might be your institutional account, a Google account, or any other type of account supported by Globus.
A Group is a collection of users (Identities) which you can use for data sharing and other features within Globus.
You may have multiple accounts at different institutions. Follow the Identity Linking Tutorial to learn how you can link them together into a single account.
This lets your colleagues share data and connect with you using any of your institutional usernames, all under the same account!
Follow the Group Management Tutorial to learn how to create a Group, add and remove members, and set policies on the Group.
Groups let you collect many of your users or colleagues together into a single object which you can use for data sharing and other features.
When managing access to restricted data, you need to ensure that your Groups are also enforcing your institutional policies.
Follow the High-Assurance Groups Tutorial for a step-by-step guide to set your Groups to be usable with protected data.
