A group that contains all the users assigned to a specific company. Company groups are determined dynamically at runtime and are not stored in the user data source (directory service or database).
After you activate companies by setting the corresponding user management properties and restarting the SAP NetWeaver Application Server (AS) Java, the company groups are automatically displayed on the user interface and you can assign users and roles to them. If you deactivate companies, the company groups are no longer displayed.
Company groups are named as follows:
Company <company_name> (STPD_<company_name>)
