Vendor Group Users

Explain the purpose of the “Vendor Group Users” field by group or provide a link to information

Groups are often used to track the different vendors a studio may working with. They may also give Shotgun access to the users at that vendor facility. In order to keep track of which users belong to which vendor, these users are linked to their vendor Group using the Person “Vendor Group” (HumanUser.sg_vendor_group) field. The other side of this field on Groups, you can see which users belong to that vendor with the “Vendor Group Users” (Group.sg_people) field.

The reason there’s a separate field to track the vendor users membership to their vendor group, is that you may want to also want to group users by other categories, separate from their vendor group.

Hope that makes sense.
