Prevent the activities of one department from affecting another department.
To prevent the activities of one department from impacting a different department, create separate Secure Agent groups for each department. For example, users in the sales department run 10 times as many tasks as users in the finance department, but the finance tasks are more time critical. To prevent the sales tasks from impacting the finance tasks, create separate Secure Agent groups for each department. Then assign the sales tasks to one runtime environment and the finance tasks to the other runtime environment.
Separate tasks by environment.
You can create different Secure Agent groups for test and production environments. When you configure a connection, you can associate it with the test or production database by choosing the appropriate Secure Agent group as the runtime environment.
