Theories of supergravity in dimension $l \lt 11$ always contain a global symmetry called Rsymmetry (a remnant of the full 11dimensional supergravity $Spin(10,1)$symmetry after KKcompactification). In some cases this is promoted to a local symmetry, such that there is a gauge field (connection on a bundle) with coefficients in that group. These are called gauged supergravity theories.
For many cases gauged supergravity theories are obtained by dimensional reduction from 11dimensional supergravity or type II supergravity, which themselves do not contain a gauge field but higher degree fields (“fluxes”), the supergravity Cfield and the Bfield respectively. These induce gauged supergravities (e.g. Samtleben 08, figure 1). The gauge groups are the Uduality groups of the compactification (e.g. Samtleben 08, table 1).
