Manage Entity Groups

Managing the entity groups of your Actito license is a right given to the users having access to the standard configuration "Admin". Thus, it is up to these license administrators to manage the entity groups. This allows them to adapt the entity groups, for instance following the creation of a new entity (on request to the Actito teams), by selecting which groups should have access, or by creating new combinations in a new group.

An entity allows you to partition resources within an Actito license. See the page Understanding entities for more information on this principle.

The license administrator has the possibility to:

  • Create entity groups

  • Edit existing entity groups

  • Delete entity groups

By clicking on the "Manage Entity Groups" button from the "My Account" menu, the license administrator accesses the license's entity group management application.

You can see all the existing entity groups in your license, the entities included in each group and the users who have access to these groups.

To create an entity group you must :

  • Indicate a name consistent with the selected entity or entities

  • Select the entities you want for this new entity group

To add additional entities, you can click on the "+" symbol.

A pop-up window will then indicate that the selected group of entities has been successfully deleted.
