    Jive hierarchy structure

    yogeshwar_vhatkar

      I am using JiveN trial version.
      I have created my account and added some blog post, document, uploaded a PDF.
      I want to understand the hierarchy of contents.
      Means is root a type of Space with URL its name.

          I'm not quite sure I understand the question, but will take a stab.

           

          Root Community is a Container of Places and (Placeless content, i.e. private content).

           

          Each place has contents they can store based on their configuration and rules.

           

          Spaces are places that are nest-able and support ACL like permission sets (defined from the top-down).

           

          Group are places that are flat in nature (no nesting allowed) and support a more organic (bottom-up) assigned membership.  Add Member, Request to Join, etc...

           

          Projects are a sub-place that can be stored inside a Space or a Group for all intents and purposes.

           

          Contents inherit the permissions from the places they are stored.

           

          That's an oversimplification of Content/Places and relationships...but hope it helps.

           

          There are a series of documents available here that I would recommend for these types of questions:

          Documentation - Jive Software

          as the answer may be better illustrated.

           

          Hope that helps.
