Create a group for just my account

Is there a way to create a group that is local to my account rather than off root? I would like to use grouping like I can with our local GitLab instance.

I’m not sure I understand the question… What do you mean local to your account?

Well for our local gitlab I thought the groups were local to the user. But it appears that this is not the case. So, I guess I was confused thinking that in a local gitlab instance the group was local to the user account.
