How can properties of remote thing be used to dynamically build a a tree structure

I would like to show a treeview of Organizations and their units or logical hierarchy of Organization (which might or might not be based on physical location).

This is for a SaaS project where a SaaS admin could see all organizations and their logical hierarchy and assets/things associated with it.

For a particular organization there will be 3 roles that should have limited visibility and permissions within that organization only.

For a SaaS provider, except admin there are other roles like FSE (Field service engineer) which should be able to access assets for a particular region (across  geographical locations)

I want to see how to achieve this in Thingworx. Below is an excerpt from an Axeda presentation on this topic. It seems to have a built-in, configurable way to achieve this grouping.

Thanks,

Rad

Hello, Rad.

This could likely be done by a Service but we need more information about the underlying data structure(s) in order to give any specific advice.

Thanks,
