Groups and Folders

Groups and folders are made to split and share permissions within workspace.


Groups are users classed together. Users within a same group (you can also call it role) will have homogenous permissions. Same users can be in multiple groups at the same time.


As for users, groups can be given 3 levels of permission for a given item:

  • Viewer: read-only access.
  • Writer: read and write access.
  • Admin: read and write access, and can manage permissions and new admins.


Folders allow to group items such as scripts/flows/resources/schedule together and to grant homogenous (Role-based access control) permissions to groups and individual users towards them.


Groups and Folders together

Groups can be part of folders, not the other way around.

It means that if you want to allow a team to use a given resource, you can save it in a folder, and either add each member of the team as a user in the folder, or add a group containing the whole team to the folder.


For example, you build a Slackbot and want it to use manipulate some resources. Then you should add the group "slack" (automatically created once you configured Slack on Windmill to the given resource).
