Run As User Library

The Run As User Library is used to create and manage user profile information for use in Run As or Connect As actions. These actions enable actions to be performed using different user credentials. For example, a user may require mapping to a network drive or the ability to launch an application using different credentials.

The users defined in the library are available from the Friendly Name drop-down in the Run As or Connect As tabs in many of the action dialog boxes for user triggers.

As well as being accessed from the Manage tab, the Run As User Library is available by selecting the ellipsis in the Friendly Name field. This allows new users to be added to the library whilst creating actions.
