Property Groups

A property group is a collection that gather sets of related Properties to aid discovery and navigation. All properties that describe the same features are gathered together in property groups. Each property in the registry will be assigned to one property group. For example, Property Group named “Life Event Characteristics” will have the properties that are related to lifetime of a person or organisation like Date of Birth, Time of Birth etc.
