    How can properties of remote thing be used to dynamically build a a tree structure

    I would like to show a treeview of Organizations and their units or logical hierarchy of Organization (which might or might not be based on physical location).

    This is for a SaaS project where a SaaS admin could see all organizations and their logical hierarchy and assets/things associated with it.

    For a particular organization there will be 3 roles that should have limited visibility and permissions within that organization only.

    For a SaaS provider, except admin there are other roles like FSE (Field service engineer) which should be able to access assets for a particular region (across  geographical locations)

    I want to see how to achieve this in Thingworx. Below is an excerpt from an Axeda presentation on this topic. It seems to have a built-in, configurable way to achieve this grouping.

    All grouping structures can be configured to be created and managed automatically by the the system based on data that is being reported from the devices
