15.2.7 Membership Assignment

After Business Rule Groups have been created and permissions to Catalogues, Financial tracking codes and P-cards granted, they must be assigned to users.
Until this assignment is performed users will not have access to any of the data granted by the BRG. In the Membership window of the BRG you can assign the group to both users and organisations. Assigning a group to an organisation will automatically grant membership to all users who are associated with that organisational level.

Users must be created before user membership can be granted but not necessary before organisational membership is granted.

  6. To include all levels below the organisation you have chosen, ensure the 'Check box if selection should apply to this organisation and lower', check box is ticked. This is ticked by default.

Search and Filter
The Assigned Organisations table will display 10 entries, sorted alphabetically by default but can be extended using the Show entries control in the top left hand corner of the table. Using the list box, choose an override to display 25, 50 or 100 entries. When more than one page is available, pagination controls will display the number of pages of entries and allow you to scroll or jump between those pages. A Quick filter provides a 'type ahead' text search, which automatically filters the entries in the table using the string of characters entered.

Dynamic Rule Group Assignment

The Business Rule Groups to which a user is assigned are dynamic based on the organisation to which they belong. At the time a user logs in, PECOS P2P will check which Business Rule Groups the user belongs to based on their organisation and any individual groups to which they have been added. If a user’s organisation has been reassigned, their rule group assignment will be automatically updated at the next log in. A user’s session access to catalogues, financial tracking codes and all other things governed by inclusion in a rule group will be based on this dynamic group assignment.
