Select the group you want to delete from the list of groups, then click the Delete button. A window will pop up asking you to confirm the action. Click Yes to continue and No to cancel.
To copy a group, select the group you want to copy to. This group will be overwritten, so be sure to select the correct group. Then, click the Copy Security button above the plugin list.
This will open the Copy Security window. Use the dropdown menu in this window to select the security group you want to copy from.
Click the OK button to confirm the copy or Cancel to cancel it.

To edit a group’s security settings, select the group you want to edit from the Security Group list. The list of securities will be displayed in the list on the right.
The blank box above the list is the search box. The enabled box on the left of the search box can be used to filter securities by their status. A blank box means you can only see disabled securities, a checked box means you can only see enabled securities, and a filled in box means you can see all of the securities.
Securities with an asterisk next to them have sub-securities that can also be adjusted when they are selected. These sub-securities are displayed in the pane underneath the security list.
