This topic describes the basic concepts behind Groups and the Delphix Domain, and information that can be found on the Group card.
Groups and the Delphix Domain
Beneath the Delphix Domain are Groups. The Engine Admin user can assign privileges to groups, dSources and VDBs. Privileges are inherited, meaning that privileges assigned to a group are effective for the dSources and VDBs contained in that group. The topic User Privileges for Delphix Objects describes the exact object privileges associated with the Owner and Provisioner roles within a group.
When you first install the Delphix Engine, it automatically creates a first group,
<New Group>. You can edit the name of this group to begin creating your own groups.
The Use of Groups
Group privileges function in the same way. When object privileges are created for users at the group level, those privileges apply to all objects of that type within the group. When new objects are created or added to the group, the policies and privileges you have created at the group level will be applied to them.
Databases are added to groups as part of the dSource creation process. For more information, see Linking an Oracle Data Source.
