Unfortunately that doesn't work. I have in farmconfig.php:

$GroupPattern = '(?:Site|SiteAdmin|PmWikiDe|Main|Profile|Intern)';

and in the fields config.php:

$GroupPattern = '(?:Site|SiteAdmin|PmWikiDe|Main|Profile|Intern|Test)';

And the page Test/HomePage e.g. cannot be accessed.

Actually I was looking for some simpler method to pass over additional  
Groups in adding the Group name in some kind of array. But redefining  
the whole lot is also okay for me, as long as it actually works. ;-)
