Private Groups on Discourse

That’s the expected behavior. If a Group is private, it wouldn’t show up in the list of groups. What you might be trying to achieve is a limited access group i.e make group visible to everyone but use the Access submenu to limit their ability to Join the group.


I tried that but it does not show up on the closed group section either.

Can you access the group that you’ve created by your-domain/g/group-name?
To check if it was successfully created.

No, I cannot see the group when I search for it with the name.

Was there an error when you tried to create it?

Maybe try again to create it?
