User & rights security management in SAP Business Objects Information Platform Services/ SAP Business Objects BI Platform:

Groups are collections of users who share the same account privileges. Therefore, you may create groups that are based on department, role, or location. Groups enable you to change the rights for users in one place (a group) instead of modifying the rights for each user account individually. Also, you can assign object rights to a group or groups.

In the “Users and Groups” area of the Central Management Console (CMC), you can create groups that give a number of people access to the report or folder. This enables you to make changes in one place instead of modifying each user account individually.

In addition to the basic SAP BusinessObjects BI platform or Information platform services group accounts, Data Services includes several default group accounts:
