To control the access of different users or groups to recovery plans, you can organize your recovery plans in folders.

Organizing recovery plans into folders is useful if you have many recovery plans. You can limit the access to recovery plans by placing them in folders and assigning different permissions to the folders for different users or groups. For information about how to assign permissions to folders, see Assign Site Recovery Manager Roles and Permissions in the Site Recovery Manager Administration guide.
