VO MANAGER role needed

Groups (meaning their members) can be included into each other using group relations. Perun has implicit relation between group and its subgroups (where all members of a sub-group are also members of the parent group). But you can also include group outside direct hierarchy. This is handy in cases, when you want to divide group management between more people (each managing own group), but still need to handle unified settings on single group. Also you can include a single group into many others to allow members access different services with different settings.

Perun check consistency, so you won't be able to create cycle throught include relations. Also all included members must be valid for services granted by parent group.

  • Please log in into the Perun system and then go to the VO VO Manager section.
  • On the left panel please click on VO Select VO. Now you can see the list of the VOs under your administration.
  • Please choose the desired VO, where would you like to work with group relations. There will appear a new panel with the VO settings.

    • By default you see included groups (drop-down menu Direction has Normal option selected).
    • Sub-groups are hidden by default, since their relation is implicit and can't be removed, you can show them by ticking checkbox Show sub-groups.
