How to create space-specific groups to manage permissions

Is there a way to create groups of users in a space to manage the read/write restrictions for individuals under these groups or do they have to be added individually?

Groups are a function of the user directory, and hence they are global things, not space things.

But the permissions and restrictions work with individuals or any groups, so you can still use them in there.

Actually I figured out how to do it. Admins can go to Space Tools > Manage Users/Groups and create space-specific groups, then you can configure permission settings using these groups.
