When editing workflow or folder permissions for Enterprise PDM vaults, there are many settings that will be common to multiple groups. Rather than edit each group individually it is easier to select a series of groups and apply the settings once. After the common settings are applied it would then be appropriate to return to each group on an individual basis and set the unique permissions for a given group.
To set permissions for multiple groups first launch the Enterprise PDM Administration application. Navigate to the Group section on the left, right click on the Group section label and select ‘Open’ without expanding or selecting a specific group.
The list of Groups in the vault will be listed. Multi-select using the typical CTRL-select method common to most Windows applications. Once the groups are selected right click on a selected group name and select Properties.
The standard Groups Settings dialog is shown except the Group Name text will show <More than one group is selected>. Apply the Administration, Folder, State or Transition Permissions that should be common to the selected groups.
