An organisation structure is created in Use Management that may include any number of freely named units and subunits. Each user is assigned to an organisation unit that becomes the user’s home unit. The desired user roles for each service available to the organisation are assigned to the user.
NOTE! When the units are named, special attention should be paid in ensuring that they can be easily distinguished from one other. Naming several units so that they will start with the same word will increase the possibility for confusion.
