7. Administration Features

7.1 Creation of new Group Profiles

The user with administrative privileges can manage the creation of various groups corresponding to the various contributors/users of the database (e.g. in the FAO-GeoNetwork node you may find as many groups as GIS Projects that produce general geographic information in different fields of activities: Fishery, Agriculture, Land and Water, Health etc).

To create new groups you should first of all authenticate yourself and determine if you have the required administrative privileges. To log in, simply go to the homepage and enter your username and password in the top right corner fields (use admin for both username and password), then click on the login button (Figure 7.1, “Login form”).
