How to create a group?

is question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Adding or Removing Users in Groups

Not how to add users to a group, but how to create a group?

As a (basic) admin, do I have permissions/rights to add groups?  In the Confluence Documentation, they reference accessing the gear icon, etc., but I do not even see it.

Thank you for any direction on these questions.

If you are an administrator, you can add groups as described at https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-groups-for-administrators-138706.html#ConfluenceGroupsforAdministrators-Addordeletegroups.

This works when you are using the internal user directory. If you are connected to an external user directory like AD or Crowd, groups are added there and are synchronized to Confluence.

You need to be a Confluence admin. Being a space admin is not enough.
