create a new group of users


accurev mkgroup <group-name> 


The mkgroup command creates a new AccuRev group, with a name up to 96 characters long. Groups enable you to implement security based on development roles, using access control lists (ACLs) maintained with the setacl and lsacl commands. For instance, you can allow/deny access to particular streams and depots based on membership or non-membership in a group and you can also set up roles such as “developer” or “writer”.

See Entity Names for information on naming groups. If you rename an existing group with the chgroup command, you can then create a new group with the original group name.


Create an AccuRev group named eng:

> accurev mkgroup eng
