Users and groups

When you first install the App Layering appliance and log onto the management console, there is a “built-in” Administrator account that you can use to get started. This Administrator has the rights to perform all App Layering operations. You can edit this user’s properties, including the name, password, and contact info. Be sure to change the password for this built-in Administrator account as part of installing and configuring the appliance.

Other than the built-in Administrator account, all users and groups are actually AD users and groups imported via one or more directory junctions. Once your directory junction(s) have been created, you can assign Roles to each user. You can see which roles are assigned to a user in the User Details.

When you assign roles to Directory Service users and groups, they can use their Directory Service credentials to log into the management console. Roles determine which App Layering modules a user can manage. Users assigned one or more roles can log into the management console. These users are listed on the Administrators tab (select Users > Roles).
