Managing security on an organizational group
Managing security is an important part of asset management. You can grant different levels of access according to the responsibilities and location of the users. These settings ensure that only authorized users can access and modify the data.
Managing security on an organizational group involves two main steps. You assign an organizational group to a security role, and then you set the security permissions for the organizational group.

(Optional) Create a custom security role
When you want to manage security on an organizational group, the first step is to create the custom security roles. Custom security roles can help you better manage the assets that are dispersed over multiple sites or organizational units.
For more information, see the topics about creating and configuring a security role in the Symantec Management Platform Help.
Assign an organizational group to a security role
After you create a security role, you can assign an organizational group to it. Only users who are assigned to this security role can view and manage the assets of this organizational group.
See Assigning an organizational group to a security role.
Configure security permissions for an organizational group
To control what a security role can do with asset records of an organizational group, you must configure its security settings.
