What Does the AD Group Assignment Plugin Do?
This plugin allows you to create objects (or resources) in tenfold that consist of an image, a title and a description that is understandable to users. These objects can be categorized and made available in the self-service portal. Through workflows, data owners can control how and to whom these resources are assigned.
At the same time, Active Directory groups that function as technical control mechanisms (and which usually have incomprehensible names) are hidden from users. When a resource is assigned, tenfold adds the corresponding user to the group automatically; if the resource is removed, tenfold deletes the corresponding user from the group. The plugin is often used for the integration of Citrix® environments to control which applications users should have access to.
The plugin is also commonly used to model applications and systems that provide certain functions to users. These include proxy servers for internet activation, remote VPN access or certain permissions and roles in applications that are integrated with AD.
