Globus provides capabilities to create and manage groups, which can then be used to share files and folders with a group of Globus users.

  1. The Groups dashboard is the home for all group management capability in Globus. You can create a new group by clicking on one of the "Create New Group" links as shown below.

    You can invite users either by providing their email address or by searching for their Globus identity. A notification will be sent to the user’s registered email address with a link to use to accept the invitation to the group.

    • Invite by email address: Enter the email address for the person you wish to invite. This is a good option to use for members who don’t yet have a Globus account.
