Organization unit sets

Introduction to OU sets

This chapter provides you with an overview of all currently configured organization unit sets.

An Organization unit set, as the name implies, is the grouping of several organization units into one (a set of standalone organization units). The feature is quite useful when, for example, you're in process of attaching product assortments, or when you're adding a payment type to several organization units. So, instead of doing the underlying configuration for each and every single organization unit separately, you can simply just specify a set and the underlying configurations being performed would apply to all organization units included in that set.


In order to be able to access this chapter, you need the OrganizationUnitSets permission. Permissions are managed from the Roles and rights chapter namely, from the functionalities card of a users role.

Managing OU sets

The Organization unit sets chapter of Admin Suite, is your place to add, delete or edit OU sets.

To add, simply click the '+' in the top right corner, or click an existing one to edit or delete.

Regardless whether you are adding or editing, the OU sets management flow will consist of three tabs:

Update set

The Update set tab is where you define your set by giving it a name, a description, a type, and more.

Include and exclude OU's

The Include and exclude OU's tab is where you can in- or exclude organizations units that would then form your set.

Use the drop-downs to select the desired OU or OU set (yes, it's also possible to add a set to a set. Could prove useful in some scenarios).

Once done, you'll notice the added or excluded OUs on the bottom and right side.
