How to add Department/Unit Folders for Team Dynamix in AuthMan

A Department/Unit Folder has been created in Authorization Manager for Team Dynamix access. The steps below are how to create the Department/Unit groups for access and privileges.

Once the Team Dynamix Admins notify the Department/Unit Admins that their folder has been created in Authorization Manager (AuthMan), they can then create a group under that folder. This can be done by opening the Department/Unit’s folder under their Campus, selecting ‘Functions’ and then selecting ‘Create new group’.

Create New Group in Authman

The group name is determined by the Department/Unit.  To keep with the naming conventions in AuthMan, please do not name it the same as the Department/Unit. Authman allows the use of underscore "_" and dash "-" only, no other special characters can be used in naming. In the example above, the group is for the Department/Unit Help Desk.  So, the name of the group is BWHelpDesk without spaces.  Make sure to put a detailed description in for the group in this record also.

New Group naming/description page

When the group is created, you will see a Success comment at the top of the screen.  You will need to refresh your “Browse folders” pane by clicking on the two arrows to the right of “Browse folders”.  From here you can add the employees who are apart of this group.

Successfully created Group page

Once this has been created, you can add/remove members to the group. You can follow the instructions in KB: Authorization Manager, Manage Memberships

TDX membership attributes such as "isNotified" or "isManager" are supported by setting custom attributes on the memberships within each group in AuthMan. The process for setting those are here: Team Dynamix Support on Authorization Manager - Adding Attributes
