Use Cases / Example Scenarios for Organization Types

Regular Contributor

Hello everybody,

we are currently exploring the organization feature and stumbled across the organization types:

  • Request Rules: If the newly created organization needs to be used for Request rule, select Request Rules type.
  • Data Security: If you want to use the newly created organization for data level security using the analytical control preventative type with entitlement update rule, select Data Security.
  • Grouping: The organization of type grouping are used to be able to associate a line item in function_objects to an organization of type "grouping".

Based on this short elaboration, a correct understanding on how and when to use which organization type was not possible.
Are there further example scenarios for understand the different types in a better way?

Thank you!
