Assigning Users to a File Group

You can assign specific permissions to local users and user groups. Only authorized applications and scripts assigned to a user or a user group can run on the client. Ivanti Device and Application Control verifies which file group is associated with an executable, script, or macro and whether the user has permission for the file group.

    The User Explorer window opens.
  2. Select the User by File Group tab.
  3. In the File Groups list, select a file group.
  4. Click Add.
    The Select Group, User, Local Group, Local User dialog opens.
  5. Click Search.
    The Name column list the user group, user, local user group, and local user names.
  6. Select one or more user or user group names from the list.
  7. Click OK.
    The Select Group, User, Local Group, Local User dialog closes.

The file group is assigned to the designated user or user group.
