You can import to the Back Office the data about user groups, including the data about permissions granted to each group, from a JSON file.
To import the data about Back Office user groups, do the following:
Navigate to System > Users > Groups.
Click the Import button located in the upper-right corner of the page.
In the Import groups window that is displayed, click Browse and navigate to a JSON file containing the data that you want to import.
To choose how to import the data if a file lists the same user group names as that of the existing groups, select one of the following options from the Replace drop-down list:
Enabled — to replace the existing user groups with the imported user groups.
Disabled — to add the imported user groups to the existing ones. In this case, incremental postfixes (such as (1), (2) and so on) are added to the names of the imported user groups.
If their names don’t match the existing user group names, such groups are appended to the list of Back Office user groups.
Click Save to import the data.
