We have a group name X in Instance A with some permissions assigned to it. I want to migrate this group name X to instance B ( permissions should also be migrated)

I tried using package manager ( by taking this group as a package filter), but this doesn't works

Who so have really worked this, please share specific approach to the problem

Thanks a lot guys....

Have you given a look to the ACL Packager from acs commons?

https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/acl-packager.html

I used it in the past in projects to set ACL permissions and users/groups between AEM instances.

thanks for sharing...,

Can you please elaborate more on how I can use this for packing all permission of a individual group.

in the configuration of the package, you select the Principals that you want to retrieve the ACL permission for (Person or Groups)
and then in the "include patterns" you give the paths to the nodes that you want the ACL to be retrieved (EG /content/site/)
The link I provided gives pretty much all the instructions you would need.

The issue is we are using AEM 5.6.1 and above suggested didn't not work

Any other approach, I thought is more commom use case and I would get answer

Perhaps if you provided more details, such as a sample of a package with one member and the one group to which they belong and some ACLs applied, and then what, exactly happens.  Also, check your logs and provide any relevant messages.

That might help you get more specific answers.
