Before assigning actions to users you need to perform the following steps in the order given:
Use assignments to make actions available to your users. This allows you to replace a portion of your users’ logon scripts.
This is your list of configured users and groups (see Users in Active Directory Objects). Double-click a user or group to populate the assignments menu. You can use Find to filter the list by name or ID against a text string.
To simplify assigning actions for all users in Active Directory, use the ‘Everyone’ default group to assign the actions.
Allows you to assign actions to the selected user/group. You can use Find to filter the list by name or ID against a text string.
Available. These are the actions available to you to assign to this user or group.
Double-clicking an action or clicking the arrow buttons will assign/unassign it. When you assign an action, you are prompted to select the rule you wish to use to contextualize it.
Assigned. These are the actions already assigned to this user or group. You can expand individual actions to configure them (application shortcut locations, default printers, drive letter, and so on).
To assign actions to users/groups
In the Users list, double-click on a user/group. This populates the Assignments lists.
In the Available list, select an action and click the right-arrow (>) button.
In the Assign Filter dialog, select a Filter Rule and click OK.
In the Assigned list, you can use the Enable and Disable context actions to fine-tune the behaviour of the assignment.
For example, say you assign an action to start Notepad. In the Assigned list, the option “Autostart” is provided and set to “Disabled” by default. If you use the Enable action to enable Autostart, Notepad (local Notepad on the VDA) automatically launches when the user launches either of the following:
- A published desktop session (local Notepad automatically starts when the desktop load is complete).
The Actions Modelling Wizard displays the resultant actions for a given user only (it does not work for groups).
Fields and controls
Actions Modelling Target User. The account name for the user you wish to model.
Resultant Actions. The actions assigned to the user (whether individually or to groups the user belongs to).
User Groups. The groups the user belongs to.
