A group is a collection of users and groups that can have the same privileges, roles, and permissions.
The Groups section of the Navigator organizes groups into security domain folders. A security domain is a collection of user accounts and groups in an Informatica domain. Native authentication uses the Native security domain which contains the users and groups created and managed in the Administrator tool. LDAP authentication uses LDAP security domains which contain users and groups imported from the LDAP directory service.
When you select a security domain folder in the Groups section of the Navigator, the contents panel displays all groups belonging to the security domain.
When you select a group in the Navigator, the contents panel displays the following tabs:
  • Overview. Displays general properties of the group and users assigned to the group.
  • Privileges. Displays the privileges and roles assigned to the group for the domain and for application services in the domain.
  • Permissions. Displays the level of access that users within the group have perform tasks on domain objects, including nodes, grids and application services . Also displays the level of access that users within the group have to perform tasks on connection objects and operating system profiles.
