PMA.core supports the notion of Groups which you can find under the User management → Groups menu. A groups is simply a named list of users in which you can apply permissions. There is a special group named Everyone which cannot be deleted or edited that every PMA.core user is always a member of

In the main list page you can see a paginated list of all groups defined in the system. Each row (except the everyone group) has the following options for the corresponding group:

  • Edit
  • Details
  • Audit trail
  • Remove

On the top part of this page you can search a specific group either by clicking on the initial letter on the Quick Lookup option, or by typing part of the name in the search text box and pressing enter


You can create a new group by clicking on the Add button on the top right corner of the list page. To create a new you simply need to provide a name for this group


After creating a new group or by clicking on the Edit button on the list page you can modify a group. In this page you can add and remove users that are members of this group. You can also modify the group name.

  • Select one or more users on the left side panel and click the '»' button to add the selected users to the group
  • Select one or more users on the right side panel and click the '«' button to remove the selected users to the group
