Organization

The Organization view is used for creating and managing an organization structure. An unlimited number of organization nodes can be created in an unlimited number of levels. However, it is recommended to keep the organization structure as simple as possible, reflecting how license costs are allocated within the organization.

The main part of Organization work space shows the organization structure. To the right, information on Auto Connect Rules and organization Levels is shown.

Import of an organization structure

An organization structure can be imported from an Excel file or from an Active Directory. Note that, if an organization structure is re-imported, connections to items will be lost.

When importing from Excel, the first column of the import source file must specify the organization ID as a complete, comma-separated structure. Also, each organization node must be unique.

Example 41.

Note

It is not allowed to use apostrophes in organization names. If an apostrophe is used in an organization name, an error message will appear when the user tries to edit the organization node.

Export of an organization structure

An organization structure can be exported to an XLS, XLSX, or CSV file.

Auto Connect Rules

Auto Connect Rules are used for automatically assigning computers, mobile devices, devices (RDS/Citrix), and users to the right place in the organization structure.
