We are being asked by our Business Units and user community to give them the ability to manage adding and removing members into the groups for their Business teams.
However, we cannot allow this as in Windchill PDM, the user must be an Org Admin to manage the groups. And we cannot allow this access since it will also give access beyond managing groups. (such as workflows, OIRs etc). It is still not possible even now in Windchill 11.0!
My request is:
Is it possible to implement this functionality in PDM so that non-org admins who are added into the Group Administrators are allowed to manage their group members? (similar to how we have Product Creators, Project Creators who have access to only their project or product containers like that)
So, the group creators cannot access the groups that is Owned by someone else. However, they have access to the groups they are owners of and can manage it themselves by adding and removing users.
By default, the groups will be created by a System Admin who is an Org admin. Once the group is created and the Group Owner is assigned, then, that group can be managed by that Group Owner to add or remove users into the Group.
This functionality will be useful for Product, Library and Project containers. (Infact, all the containers in Windchill platform)
