Creating a Group Family

Group Family > Creating a Group Family

Creation of a Group Family is a two-step process that includes:

  1. Creating the Group Family configuration
  2. Running the Group Family to initially create or capture groups

The Active Roles console provides the New Group Family wizard for creating the Group Family configuration. The wizard creates a group, referred to as configuration storage group, and populates that group with the configuration data you specify.

Note that you can create any number of Group Families, with each Group Family intended to control a certain collection of groups. When linking a group to a grouping, the Group Family engine ensures the group is under the control of only the Group Family that created the link, thereby avoiding conflicts.

Start the New Group Family wizard

Group Family > Creating a Group Family > Start the New Group Family wizard

You can start the New Group Family wizard in the Active Roles console by using the New | Group Family command on the organizational unit in which you want to place the configuration storage group.

To start the New Group Family wizard

  • Right-click the organizational unit to hold the Group Family configuration storage group, and select New | Group Family.

Name the Group Family

Group Family > Creating a Group Family > Name the Group Family

The first page following the Welcome page is used to provide a name for the new Group Family. The name is assigned to the group that stores the Group Family configuration data (configuration storage group).

You can also use this page to adjust the type and scope of the configuration storage group. These are set to Security and Global by default, and normally need not be modified.

Figure 93: Group Family name

Type in a Group Family name, and then click Next to continue.

Grouping Options

The next page provides a list of commonly used grouping criteria. Group Family creates groupings based on the properties you can select on this page or specify later.

Figure 94: Grouping options

You can choose one of these options:

  • Pre-configured grouping  Provides a list of commonly-used group-by properties, such as Department, Title, or Geographic Location. Select an entry from the list to specify the group-by properties. Later, on the Group-by Properties page, the wizard will allow you to view or modify the list of the group-by properties you have selected.
  • Custom grouping  Lets you proceed without selecting group-by properties at this stage. The wizard will prompt you to set up a list of group-by properties on the Group-by Properties page.
