Administering Group Responsibility

To avoid having groups with no responsible party, run the Groups without a Responsible Party report. You can assign responsibility using the Responsible Party property on the Group Details page for each group, or bulk assign them from the Groups ViewMany page.

By default, the type of responsible party is set to Person, but you can edit the EmpowerID System Settings to change it to any actor type. See Changing the Responsible Party Type for more information.

To find groups without a responsible party

  1. In the Navigation Sidebar, expand System Logs and select Reports.
  2. Scroll down and click the Groups without a Responsible party tile.

  3. A grid populates with information about all Groups in the EmpowerID system that do not have a responsible party.

To assign a person responsibility for a group

  1. In the Navigation Sidebar, expand Identities and select Groups.

  3. On the Group Details page that appears, under General, click in the Responsible Party field and start typing a name to search, and then click the tile for that person to select it.

  4. The Group updates automatically when you select the tile, and an Update Complete message informs you when it is finished.

To bulk assign responsibility for a number of groups

  1. In the Navigation Sidebar, expand Identities and select Groups.
  2. On the Actions tab, click Assign Responsibility for Groups.
