Link a Workgroup to a PTS Group

PTS groups are used to control permissions to directories in AFS.  See the PTS Groups page for more information about AFS PTS groups. Your can only link a workgroup to a new PTS group, with either the suggested default name or by editing the suggested name. The default name is "workgroup: <workgroup_name>". The PTS group name must start with "workgroup:" and must NOT have the mailing list domain name.


  • PTS group linking will fail if you edit the suggested default PTS group name to an existing PTS group.
  • Unlinking a workgroup from a PTS group does not delete the PTS group.
