The SharePoint 2010 service for Services Manager delivers a SharePoint web site to share documents and information from the cloud. CloudPortal Service Manager integrates with SharePoint servers through a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service.
The SharePoint 2010 service has one standard user plan (named Full) applied to all users. The standard user plan assigns users to a specific Active Directory (AD) security group which does not affect user access within the SharePoint site. You do not need to manage the individual users in the SharePoint application. AD Domain Services (ADDS) manages the users for you.
The SharePoint 2010 service includes twelve customer plans that support common configurations. You can disable the default plans and create new ones. However, you cannot switch to a different customer plan after provisioning. For details about the default customer plan properties and patterns, see SharePoint 2010 Default Customer Plans.
