The organisational units allow self managed areas in the OpenCms system with their own groups and users. Now it is possible to have an organizational unit for each site in OpenCms, or even for subfolders in a site.

The Account Management has been enhanced to cover the functionality as well as the workplace login dialog.


Import / export users

User and group data can now be imported from a CVS file or exported to a CSV file.

Once created complex group and user structures can be transferred easily to other OpenCms installations using these features.
