In order to use the User/Group Restrictions selection H. Custom Group of Users the developer must maintain an .htgroup directory in the site data directory. When Webservices sets up the requested security an .htgroup file will be placed in the site data directory.
Noteworthy items about the .htgroup file:
- If you move the file it will not work.
- The instructions for configuring your .htgroup file are located within the file itself.
- The (data) directory must be selected and deployed forward to QA and Prod to take affect.
