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.

See About managing security in Asset Management Suite.

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.
