User groups are a collection of users who perform a similar task. For example, a group of customer service representatives can be grouped into a Customer Service Representative user group.
Users can belong to multiple user groups for which permissions are assigned. A user who belongs to multiple user groups retains the least restrictive set of permissions that are defined by the groups they belong to. For example, consider a user who belongs to a user group that allows the user to use the Sterling Order Management System Software Application Console. If the same user belongs to a user group that allows the user to access both Sterling Order Management System Software Application Console and Applications Manager, the user will have access to both the applications. Each organization has its own user groups. User groups can contain only users of the same organization that the user was created. However, a user group that is created by the Hub organization can contain users of any organization.
