In Learn, administrators can work with domains to organize and control other objects and their settings. Every object in Learn including users, organizations, jobs, learning activities, security roles, and skills must belong to a domain. Every object in a domain behaves in a particular way based on domain settings.
You may use Learn in your enterprise even without setting up domains. As an administrator, you can simply place users in groups known as organizations and these organizations can all belong to a single domain. But in such a case, your enterprise cannot leverage benefits of the domains feature.
This chapter explores the concept of domains and the benefits they provide. This chapter includes implementation scenarios to demonstrate how domains may be used in an enterprise.
A domain is an object in Learn that owns other objects such as users, security roles, jobs, organizations, settings, and learning activities. A domain is a special type of organization.
You can work with domains in Learn to manage:
- Security (on page 35): Every user in Learn is assigned to a primary domain. Membership in a domain affects a user’s access to objects in Learn. Users can be members of multiple domains. For each domain membership, an Learn user is assigned a security role. Hence, a user can be a learner in one domain and an administrator in another domain.
- Settings (on page 59): You can configure different settings for a domain. You can either inherit settings from the parent domain or configure settings for the current domain separately.
