A role is a group of users to which you assign applications. You can use roles to assign groups from Active Directory in App Controller. After you add Active Directory groups to a role, you then assign applications to the role. The basic steps for adding a role in App Controller are as follows:
If users are members of multiple groups, you can choose if users must be members of all of the defined groups or if users can belong to some of the groups. For example, you have JohnD in the Sales, Finance, and Marketing Groups. To access apps and data, you can require JohnD to be a member of all three groups. You can also allow JohnD to be a member of any of the groups to gain access to apps and data.
You can assign web, SaaS, and mobile applications to a role. You can also assign web links to a role and add roles to ShareFile settings.
After you configure roles, you configure the applications for single sign-on (SSO). You can then assign one or more applications to the roles. For example, you configure Sales, Marketing, and Finance roles in App Controller. After you configure the Salesforce and GoToMeeting application connectors, you might assign the Salesforce application to the Sales role and you might assign GoToMeeting to all three roles.
When you add a role, you assign one or more Active Directory groups to the role. You must have an active connection from App Controller to Active Directory to add a role. After you add groups to the role, you then assign applications to the role.
When you configure a role and add multiple Active Directory groups, you can require users to be a member of all groups or you can require membership in at least one of the selected groups.
When you delete a role, the role is removed from App Controller. If you need the role again, you need to configure a new role.
If only one domain is configured, this field appears as a label. If you configure multiple domains, the field appears as a drop-down list.
Storage Zone only appears if you configure ShareFile in App Controller. If ShareFile is not configured, you can click the Sync icon to add the domain, user name, and password for ShareFile. When you click Discover, App Controller retrieves the ShareFile Storage Zone. The Sync icon does not appear if you configure ShareFile in App Controller.
