TABLE OF CONTENTS
Most Organisations associate AD groups with many applications. An admin can use the groups to assign Users or Devices access to the application. For example, if an admin wants to assign access for the finance department to use a financial application e.g Reuters Eikon , they can create an AD group that contains the users in the Financial department and then assign that group to the application that is needed by the finance dept. This article outlines the steps required to set this up within ManagementStudio.
Add the AD groups to the Application
- Switch to the Applications (1) module.
- Double click on the required Application (2) on the grid.
- Click on the Connector (1) tab .
- Select the AD connector tab (2).
- Add in the corresponding AD group in the App AD Group (3)text block.
- Click Save Changes (4).
