For information about administering access-group access control, see Implementing Access-Group Access Control.
An access group is a collection of any combination of positions, organizations, account, households, and user lists. Its members are instances of party types other than Person—that is, its members cannot be individual people. For example, an access group could consist of several partner organizations and user lists to which you want to grant access to a particular set of your sales tools.
You can create hierarchies of access groups. An access group can belong to only one access group hierarchy. That is, an access group can have only one parent access group. For example, the access group mentioned above might belong to a hierarchy of access groups for the purpose of granting differing levels of access to sales tools.
You can grant access groups access to catalogs and categories of master data: products, literature, solutions, resolution items, decision issues, events, training courses, and competitors. For example, branches in the access group hierarchy above could be granted access to categories in a hierarchical catalog in which each category contains sales literature and decision issue items. For an illustration of an access group hierarchy (master data), see Access Control for Data.
A category of master data can contain any combination of master data items. You can only control access to catalogs and categories of master data. You cannot control access to individual master data items using access-group access control.
