Package Security Groups

Package Security Groups is used to delegate packages, applications and software groups to different users.

You assign packages to the Package Security Group and then you assign the Package Security Group to one or more Security Roles.

 

You can for instance use Package Security Groups to delegate packages to different departments and locales or keep test and production packages separate.

 

Packages which are not assigned to any Package Security Groups are available to all users of SoftwareCentral.

 

Package Security Groups are managed from the Package Security Groups interface found under the Settings menu:

 

In the left menu you can find the search field. Use this to type part of or the full name for the Package Security Group you are looking for.
