Purpose Groups: Give aliases to groups

Background / Value

Purpose groups add clear descriptions to AD groups. Normally these groups have very technical naming convention and so it is often difficult for an Administrator to tell what the purpose of an AD group is. Adding aliases can make the picture much clearer.


The alias descriptions are only visible in the 8MAN UI. The actual group names remain the same in Active Directory.
