CO320 - Modeling Organizational Structures in COmanage

When using COmanage with your organization or collaboration, the people that you have registered will naturally fall into groups, perhaps by organizational unit, project team, or the activities that a group of people can do. In this lesson, you will learn how these structures are modeled within COmanage and understand which structures to use to meet your needs.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? Application administrators.


CO101: Getting to Know COmanage or equivalent

Top Things You Need To Know

  1. What natural groups do you have in your organization, project or collaboration?
  2. Do you already have information about the individuals that you would like to register?
  3. Where is the information about these individual stored? (i.e., in a system? a spreadsheet? on a sheet of paper? multiple places?)
  4. Are there distinct "lifecycles" that you have with different groups? (For example, do some groups only exist for limited timeframes? Are there groups that take on new characteristics over time?)
  5. What conditions explored above most affect system and resource access decisions?
