In Arcgis Online, to make a member 'group manager' their role needs a full complement of group authorisations. Including 'create / delete groups'.
In our company this would lead to extra groups under these member accounts, which creates extra overhead, too much management, chaos... We need a more manageable environment.
So I would like to be able to make a member 'group manager' of an existing, official company group, WITHOUT them having 'group create / delete etc' authorisation in their overall role.
At this moment, if I try to make a member group-manager with only 4 of the 5 group authorisations ticked, I get an error message 'insufficient authorisations'. Grrrr.....
To be a manager of an existing group you don't need to be able to create your own groups!
Total agree with this. I'm facing the same issue now as I don't want group creation to run rampant just because a named user (group manager) of a group for the purpose of management of content has the privilege to create/delete groups.
These types of functions (eg. create, delete) are clearly for the named users with elevated privileges for portal governance
Completely agree with this as well. I ran into the same exact scenario.
