Group hubs- visibility based on roles

Hey guys, I have an area for Groups Hubs, and I'd like to set permissions on this area so that 

1) i can have an internal only group only visible to only internals

2) I can have groups on partners/customers can see 

is that possible?? Doesn't seem like it and I didn't see any content that explicitly stated this.

If you set the group hub to hidden, nobody except those in the group can see it.  Are you wanting to just send folks a link to request access?  To accomplish this, you could:

Create a closed group

On the overall permissions, set the permission to view group hubs to deny

Add a role for "Internal" onto the node, and grant the "view group hub" permission

You will now be able to send the link to "Internal" users who can view/open/request to join, but the rest of the world will not be able to see that group hub or know that it exists.

@StanGromer It seems like you're recmomending to add a role on the Community level such as Internal to the Group Hub, but my understanding is Group Hubs do not read Community roles.  So if I do that, I have to add each user manually to the Internal Group Hub role.

Is my understanding correct?



Select the 'Find users' option from the "invite member" screen, and from there you can filter by a global role.  Then on right side use the "select all users across all pages" to select all.  At bottom of same page is the 'save' button which adds those selected members into the invite.



Ah!  I don't want to invite them.  I want people with a certain role to see the groups that apply to them in which they can join.  I think it's a feature request right now.
