Points to be noted in JUT

  • If "Remove from default User Group" is set to "yes" then, it will remove user from default User Group set in User Manager -> Options parameter "New User Registration Group". It will work only when subscription will become Active.

  • In case of Subscription Approval App it didn't remove user from user group as subscription will remain in Hold status. As soon as subscription will get activated, it will remove user from default user group.

  • User Group will update after re-login, so user need to logout and login again to access resources.
