1 Overview

A Security Group is a leaf in the Organogram of a company Organogram_with_Group_Profiling


A Security Group allows you to specify a business unit and then perform a number of actions with that group.


Often Groups start at a broad level all the way down to teams of 1 to 4 people.


Groups are also used to create logical units of people associated with the business or clients who have log ins to your bxp system.


2 Attached data

It is possible to store a lot of information with a Security Group.

4 Security Groups for Forms

There are statistic reports for forms in the Data Profiling that need a Security Group allocated to the form.  Form access is managed on a user by user basis for the most granular level control possible.  However for quick group reporting a security group can be associated with the form.  This association does not change form content access permissions.
