Resource Groups

Resource Groups

A resource group is a logical collection of secure resources.
You can use the Secure Resources tool to define resource groups, and then assign related resources to them. Resource groups simplify privilege assignment, which allows you to assign privileges to multiple resources and assign resource groups to a role.
To simplify administration, consider the creation of the following kinds of resource groups:
  • Define an ALL_RESOURCES resource group that contains all secure resources, which allows you to set minimal privileges globally.
  • Define resource groups by resource type so that you can set minimal privileges to those kinds of resources.
  • Define resource groups by functional area, such as TRAINING_RESOURCES, for example.
  • Define a catch-all resource group that you can then assign to many different roles that have similar privileges.
