About organizing objects in the directory

The CCS directory is hierarchical in nature, which allows users to create folders and objects in an inverted tree-like structure. This structure provides flexibility to create a hierarchy that allows the user to model the tree that is based on the organizational requirements.

When you install Control Compliance Suite, a default hierarchy is created to store objects.

Users should organize the tree to follow the flow of control in the organization?

Beyond the default hierarchy users should organize the tree to follow the flow of control in the organization. This flow is natural for the users to administer permissions on the folders and objects where needed in the tree.

Organizations with branches all over the world, with local administrators responsible for their geographical area, benefit by a hierarchy that mimics their geographical locations. This design helps organizations to administer permissions and roles for the local administrators by following their organizational structure.
