Go to the Administration –> Users –> Business Group
In Business Group you can/need to assign 4 roles
|Group manager role||Can create entitlements and assign approval policies for the group.|
|Support role||Can request and manage service catalog items on behalf of the other members of the business group.|
|Shared access role||Can use and run actions on the resources that other business group members deploy.|
|User role||Can request service catalog items to which they are entitled.|
An entitlement is how you assign users a set of catalog items. Each of these entitlements can be managed by the business group manager or a tenant administrator can manage entitlements for all business groups in their tenant.
To create Entilement go to the Administrator –> Catalog Management –> Entitlements
When you creating entitlement you can do this for Service for specific Item and assign specific Action
