In the Feide Innsyn the end user can
get an overview of which groups he/she belongs to
and create or join ad hoc groups
When logging into Feide Innsyn and visiting Group affiliation the end user will see a list of all the groups he/she belongs to that Feide is aware of. These groups can be filtered by group type and member roles, and origin from several sources:
The organization’s LDAP directory (the one connected to Feide).
A university’s FS database.
A lower or intermediate school’s instruction groups
Other databases/directories at the organization with a customized integration to Feide.
Ad hoc groups created by the end user.
Ad hoc groups which the end user is a member of, created by others.
Ad hoc groups¶
Creating your own groups is a convenient feature of Feide. Education is all about collaboration, interaction and communication - in different groups: big, small, official, non-official, permanent, temporary etc. All groups cannot and will not be registered in the official directories at the organization. Through Feide Innsyn end users are enabled to create ad hoc groups wherever needed. The ad hoc groups can be shared across all applications connected to Feide through OIDC/OAuth, as long as the end user has consented to this.
Create a new group¶
Find the button “Create ad-hoc group”.
Give the group a name and description, and submit.
