A group account is a Windows log-on shared by a number of people.
We know group accounts are useful but they are problematic from a security and licensing perspective and we need to move people to more modern solutions.
- If you require a generic account i.e. a shared log on, this will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. E.g. for specialist systems administration access where there are no other options.
- If you require shared storage, please request a collaborative network share or Microsoft Teams via the IT Service Desk. A group account for this purpose will no longer be granted.
- If you require a shared mailbox, a group account will be granted in the short term, until an alternative solution (currently being tested) is implemented.
