There are three types of security groups to which users can belong:
- global groups: built-in groups which have configurable permissions for every project.
- project groups: defined only for a particular project and the folders beneath it.
- site groups: defined by an admin on a site-wide basis which have configurable permissions for every project.
All users with accounts on LabKey belong to the Site Users group, described in the Global Groups
help topic, by default. A user can belong to any number of additional project groups; see Project Groups
for more information.
