Principal Administration, concepts for organizing Groups

Introduction

This document contains concepts for organizing Groups in the Principal Administrator.  It's based on Windchill 9.1, at least, at the moment of creation.  Please feel free to enhance these concepts, or add additional approaches (and update this introduction).

Concept 1

Usergroups

Individual users are only added to this first type of groups.  Even for groups of one user, it is reasonable to create a group.  It should make the maintenance easier.

Name includes : *_u_*

Groups of groups

Sometimes, to minimize the number of groups in e.g. context team roles, it's appropriate to combine several usergroups into one group of groups.

Name includes : *_g_*

Functional groups

When groups are created for special purposes, it's appropriate to identify them as such.  E.g. groups for saved searches.

Name includes : *_f_*

Profile groups

A special category of functional groups are groups to be added to the profile definition.

Name includes : *_p_*

Hello

thank you for the initiative.

I use it as a basis for our naming convention with some adjustement. I add the first letter to define if the group is at site level or org level (sometime usefull information).
