Evolution of the Visual Guard data model

Propagating Roles to sub-groups

In the default Visual Guard data model:

  • Permissions are grouped into roles
  • Roles are granted to groups and users

Up to VG 2017, when a role was granted to a group, it was always propagated to all sub-groups.

With VG 2018, role propagation is optional:

  • By default, a role is automatically propagated to its sub-groups.
  • You can disable this propagation by editing the role/group relationship, in the details page of the parent group.

Choose if you want to propagate a role to sub-groups
