Why reuse Windows Accounts?
- You already have a user list in Active Directory, and
want to save the time of creating a whole new user list.
- You want to manage a single user list in Active Directory
and keep maintenance costs low (by not maintaining two or
more identical user lists).
- You want to implement single sign-on in your applications.
How to declare Windows Accounts in the Console:
Visual Guard provides a ready-to-use search window
to find users or groups in Active Directory.
When you select Windows Accounts or Groups, Visual Guard PowerBuilder
stores the user's security identifier (SID) in the repository.
You can declare as many users as you need at a time.
Once declared, the user or group appears in Visual Guard user
You can then assign Visual Guard profiles and permissions
to this user.
Integration with Active Directory:
A key advantage of Visual Guard is the extremely
light integration process.
For now, it consists in 1 copy/paste operation.
