Security Group Management

Description

 

The Security Group Management is available from the menu Administration - Security Groups.

 

Security groups are used to protect sessions from a subset of system users. Assign sessions to security groups then control who has access and how much control they have on each security group.

 

Security groups are used to classify sessions and restrict access to certain users. There is no direct relationship between Active Directory and Security Groups. By default, every session is created without an assigned security group, and therefore is visible to all connected users.

 

Each entry in the navigation pane can be assigned to a single security group. Best practices dictates that you assign security groups to groups/folders that way all the entries they contain will inherit the same security group.

Assign a security group to the session

 

Security groups can be assigned to entries using the property window. Each entry can only have one security group assigned. For easy maintenance, we recommend assigning security groups to groups/folders which will result in the child entries to inherit the security group.
