Users Management

Description

 

The Users administration is available from the menu Administration - Users. Users management allows you to create, manage and assign rights to a user.

 

Remote Desktop Manager allows for advanced user rights management, letting you control how a session is employed by each user. Note that some visibility control will depend on the active data source.

 

However, there is currently no way to inherit security rights from a group. They must be assigned individually for each user.
