Business Unit Security
In Release 6.3.3, a new object editor and Privilege allow both Admins and authorized Power Users (PUs) to create and maintain a Business Unit. The new Privilege details are:
NAME: Create a Business Unit
DESCRIPTION: Create and maintain a Business Unit for association with one or more Groups
GROUPING: Power Users Content Security
CAN BE INCLUDED/EXCLUDED FROM AN INSTANCE: Yes
USER TYPE: Power User Only
PROCESSING LOGIC UPON ASSIGNMENT:
Without this Privilege, a PU may not create a Business Unit but can select a Business Unit from one or more available Business Units when creating or maintaining a Group. One and only one Business Unit may be associated with a Group. A Business Unit maybe assigned to any number of Groups.
With the Privilege:
- Allow this Privilege to be assigned to Groups or individual PUs and/or be included in a Privilege Set
- Provide a Business Unit entry in the PU's Admin menu and, when clicked, open the Business Unit List Page
- Allow the PU to create a new Business Unit with a unique name
- Make this Business Unit available to any other PUs or Admins when creating/updating Groups
There are no Permissions associated with a Business Unit. A Regular User has no ability to create or use Business Unit. The Privilege is assigned to a Group or Power User directly or indirectly via a Privilege Set. Groups may be assigned to a Business Unit via its Editor.
