Use a domain component object to replicate a directory structure, usually a Microsoft Active Directory structure, within the SGD organizational hierarchy.

Domain component objects are similar to organization objects, but do not include additional SGD-specific attributes or allow you to assign applications. That is why they are called Directory (light) objects.

Domain component objects can only appear at the top of the organizational hierarchy, or within another domain component object.

Domain component objects can contain organizational unit, domain component, Active Directory container, or user profile objects

To create a domain component object use the Administration Console or the Section D.38, “tarantella object new_dc” command.

A document object can refer to any URL. This can be any document on the web, including Oracle Open Office software documents, or Adobe® Acrobat software files. A document can also refer to a web application.

It is the user's client device that actually fetches the URL and so firewall or other security measures might prevent a user from accessing a URL.

In the Administration Console, the configuration settings for document objects are divided into a series of tabs.

C.1.10. Group Object

Use a group object to associate groups of applications with a user profile, organizational unit, or organization, or to associate similar application servers for application load balancing.

Group objects are not the same as organizational units. Applications and application servers can only belong to one organizational unit, but can be a member of many different groups.

Members of a group can be moved or renamed without affecting group membership.

Group objects can be added to the following tabs for an object.

  • Assigned Applications tab. Use this tab to assign a group of applications to a user profile, organizational unit, or organization object. The group members are shown recursively, but not the group itself. See Section C.2.12, “Assigned Applications Tab”.

  • Hosting Application Servers tab. Use this tab to assign a group of application servers to an application object. The group members are used recursively for application server load balancing. See Section C.2.60, “Hosting Application Servers Tab”.
