[Mediawiki-l] why custom groups are not available in protect

Thanks for this info. I added $wgRestrictionLevels and
$wgRestrictionTypes and added 'training team' to the array. But when I
take protect page of an article, in the selectbox, it's showing
(mine is MW 1.9.3).

Why it is so?

You need to set it in LocalSettings.php - $wgRestrictionLevels if memory
