Create a group in macOS Server
Use the Server app to create groups for Profile Manager.
You can use templates you’ve created to apply predefined settings for new groups. For information, see Manage templates in macOS Server.
In the Server app sidebar, select Groups.
If is grey, you need to unlock it. Click the lock icon, then authenticate using the Open Directory administrator’s credentials.
If you created a template, choose it from the Template pop-up menu.
Your predefined settings from the template automatically populate for the new group.
In the Full Name field, enter the group name.
The name can be up to 255 characters (or as few as 85 Japanese characters), and can include spaces.
In the Group Name field, leave the generated short name or enter a different one.
After the account is created, you can’t change the short name.
The short name is typically eight or fewer characters, but can be up to 255 roman characters. Use only the characters a through z, A through Z, 0 through 9, . (period), _ (underscore), or - (hyphen).
To associate a picture with the group account, double-click the group to edit it.
Click the silhouette and select a standard picture, or click Edit Picture to customize a picture.
When you click Edit Picture, you can take a picture with your computer’s camera or choose a graphics file on your computer. After taking or choosing a picture, you can drag the picture to pan it, or use the slider to zoom it.
When you finish customizing the picture, click Set.
