Roles Management

Description

 

Roles in Remote Desktop Manager are mainly used to reduce the time taken to manage users. The management of permissions granted to roles are quite similar to the corresponding notions for users, but instead of a single user, they apply to all users to which you've assigned the role.

Roles in Remote Desktop Manager

 

Roles in Remote Desktop Manager are simply permission sets that you assign to a user. You can assign multiple roles to each user and the end result is the union of all permissions.

Roles in Devolutions Server

 

Roles in Devolutions Server are in fact links to Active Directory groups. By leveraging Active Directory integration you can easily define access rights for all domain users in your organization. Once a domain user log in the Devolutions Server data source, their user account will be created if needed and users rights will be controlled by the defined groups.
