Remove Group Admins Smart Service


The Remove Group Admins node allows you to select one or more users within a group who have administrative rights over the group, and remove those rights. You must be a System Administrator in order to remove an administrator from a group.

Caution:  The Remove Group Admins Service Node can only be executed by a System Administrator. A group Administrator cannot remove another group administrator. Attempting to complete this task without sufficient user rights causes a an alert to be sent to the Process Administrator and the process is paused.

Configuration options

This section contains tab configuration details specific to this smart service. For more information about common configurations see the Process Node Properties page.

Data tab

This tab displays the node inputs and node outputs for the service node. You can add additional inputs and outputs, if needed.

Node inputs

The default inputs are:

Input Data Type Required Multiple
Choose Administrators People Yes Yes
Group Group Yes No

If the node is run without being assigned to a user (or a group) you must specify values for each of the Node Inputs listed in the table above. You can either manually enter data into the text-field, or a value can be generated using the Expression Editor. When using the Expression Editor, you can reference and modify Process Variables, rules, constants, and other data. The expressions then populate your Node Input values.

If the node is assigned, the Node Input values are typed by your assigned user(s) into a form.
