Organisationl units

Organisationl units offer you the option of combining endpoints with identical characteristics.

These characteristics can be departments or even locations of your company. Endpoints with the same exceptions (for example all Microsoft Exchange servers or all database servers) make sense, as our G DATA Security Operations Team can apply exceptions and security settings not only to endpoints, but also to organisationl units.

Organisationl units can also be assigned to other users by an authorized user.
This allows you to limit users' access to endpoints contained in their assigned organizational unit. The assignment gives a user permission only to the endpoints in their organizational unit as well as all those below it.

In the kickoff, our G DATA Security Operations Team supports you in setting up the structure that makes the most sense for you. This structure may or may not correspond to your Active Directory structure.

In this portal window, permitted users can view the hierarchical structure of your organizational units.

The organizational unit Default

Initially, only the standard organizational unit Default is located below your root (customer name). You can create further organisationl units.

The Default organizational unit cannot be deleted. For reasons of clarity, you should not rename or move this. Newly installed agents are always assigned to Default first and can be moved from there to the intended unit.

The detail view

Click on the line of an organizational unit to open the detail view for this unit. Here you can change the name, move or delete the unit.

Depending on the role profile of the logged-in user, it may happen that the user does not see all organisationl units and/or the Add icon icon is missing, as the user may lack the corresponding permissions.
