Integration with SharePoint
Visual Guard also supports SharePoint Server. This is an example of a possible configuration:
Visual Guard provides a native, simple integration process with SharePoint. It consists of:
- Adding a copy of the VG Runtime in the \bin folder of SharePoint Server and Websites.
- Modifying the configuration files to rely on the VG Authentication provider and VG Role provider.
SharePoint developers and administrators will continue using the SharePoint Console to manage Sharepoint Websites.
Access Control Administrators will use VG Web Console to grant permissions related to SharePoint Websites, as they would do for .NET applications. Developers will manage SharePoint websites and permissions as they normally manage .NET applications and permissions.
When users log into SharePoint, the VG runtime will take care of the user authentication and will enforce user permissions (VGDynamicPermissions Technology available).
- This model supports all SharePoint Websites and features.
- End-users, SharePoint Servers, Access Control Servers and Administrators can be located in different Sites. Internet access is the only requirement for this model to work.
