A nested group is a group that is a member of another group.
You cannot nest an environment-level group inside a population-level group.
For example, assume an environment has three groups: Group A, Group B, and Group C. Each group has access to a single application: Group A has access to App1, Group B has access to App2, and Group C has access to App3.
If you nest Group B inside of Group A, and Group C inside of Group B, then application access will be as follows:
- Group A has access to App1
- Group B has access to App1 and App2
- Group C has access to App1, App2, and App3
The following diagram illustrates this example.
You can also nest groups inside their subgroups. Continuing the previous example, if you add Group A as a subgroup of Group C, creating a circular reference, then all three groups will have access to all three applications.
