What is a parent user group?

User groups are a hierarchical structure. A child user group may only have the access rights that the parent user group already has.

For example:

  • The Group_1 user group does not have the permission called Manage the funding accounts.
  • You are creating Group_2 and you select Group_1 as the Parent Group.
  • The option to add the Manage the funding accounts permission is not displayed on the Add User Group page and you cannot add this permission as long as Group_2 is selected as the Parent Group.
