Nested access groups

Learn about nested access groups, which allow administrators to assemble access groups together.
In an effort to simplify the permission administration for a large amount of users, the administrator organize the access and create a collection of different access groups. The clusters , which will inherit the access policies from the existing access groups, are known as nested access groups.
Any access group can continue to work as normal or establish itself as the parent access group if no IDs or service IDs are associated to them. Access groups with any ID affiliation can become nested access groups once they are linked to a parent access group.
Prerequisites:
  • Parent access groups must be empty and have no IDs affiliations.
  • Nested access groups are the only ones that have service IDs and user IDs associated with them.
  • Hierarchy is limited up to 1 level of access groups.
