How do I create one Group with different content - Help me understand

I would like to have a User Sitemap for my Family. In the Sitemap they are able to change climat or heat in the Livingroom.
The on my Admin Sitemap I would see much more informations like the valve or the battery etc…

I donot quite understand how group works. I would like to use the same items file for both group (User and Admin). This would make sence otherwise I would have to do modification on both wich is “dangerous”.

So, how do I create 1 Group Eg.: Livingroom, that shows different content?
For Users they would see less things than for Admin.

I do run openHab on my nas with docker
I do have the latest openhab 2.5
I also do have a Admin sitemap, a User sitemap and a home.items files.

Thanks for the help

I managed to solve it by mayself.
I wasn’t aware that a group could be costume in the sitemap.

I created groups in items, so when I loaded thes groups in my sitemaps there where not “editable” like I wanted to.

Now I took the same group name but put some different values in my sitemaps and now it is working like I was expected.

Hope that helps other beginners too…

I’m usually creating the sitemaps directly with the items.
The problem with groups is that you cannot sort them in any manner. So after a reboot your sitemap that shows all items of a certain group might display the items in a different order than the last time.
