These conditions check Organizational Unit (OU) membership in Active Directory. Application Control connects to Active Directory and compares the OU specified in the condition with that of the current user or computer. If a match is made, any associated custom rules are applied. Match criteria are selected using the browse button that browses for OU containers. You must be a member of an Active Directory domain to browse for an OU container.
This condition can be used to ensure that only users in certain OUs can undertake certain actions.
Select the Include sub-OUs in match checkbox to search all sub-OUs of any specified OU. Without this checkbox selected, the sub-OUs are ignored and only the OU in question is included in the condition.
