Granting Access Rights to Users

Jun 04, 2010
Note: For security reasons, grant users only the rights they need to perform specific functions, such as viewing recorded sessions.

You grant rights to SmartAuditor users by assigning them to roles using the SmartAuditor Authorization Console on the SmartAuditor Server. SmartAuditor users have three roles:

  • Player. Grants the right to view recorded XenApp sessions. There is no default membership in this role.
  • PolicyQuery. Allows the servers hosting the SmartAuditor Agent to request recording policy evaluations. By default, authenticated users are members of this role.
  • Policy Administrator. Grants the right to view, create, edit, delete, and enable recording policies. By default, administrators of the computer hosting the SmartAuditor Server are members of this role.

SmartAuditor supports users and groups defined in Active Directory.

To assign users to roles

  1. Log on to computer hosting the SmartAuditor Server, as administrator or as a member of the Policy Administrator role.
  2. From the Start menu, choose All Programs > Citrix > SmartAuditor > SmartAuditor Authorization Console.
  3. Select the role to which you want to assign users.
  4. Choose Action > Assign Windows Users and Groups.
  5. Add the users and groups.
Any changes made to the console take effect during the update that occurs once every minute.
