Assigning Users and Groups to Presentations

Once a presentation has been created with Configuration Manager or Terminal Viewers, before deployment, the MCS administrator must assign users to the presentation and activate it using Presentation Manager.

Note If the Authentication Type is set to None, all users will be able to access all presentations, regardless of which users or groups are assigned to the presentations.
To assign a user or group to a presentation
  1. Run MCS.

    This procedure assumes that you've already configured MCS. For details, see the Setting Up Centralized Management section.

  2. In the MCS left pane, point to Products and then click Presentation Manager.

    The Presentation Manager tree appears in the MCS Selection panel, and the list of published presentations appears in the MCS right pane.

  3. Click to select one or more presentations to which you want to assign users.

  4. Choose the Assign Users button from the row of buttons along the bottom of the window.

    The Assign Users to presentation name dialog box appears showing the users and groups available from the configured directory service in the Directory panel on the left.

  5. From the Directory list, click the user or group that you want to assign to this presentation or to multiple presentations, and then click Add.

    The detailed permissions settings on this dialog box — Read, Write, and Execute — do not apply to presentations.

    The name of the user or group remains in the Directory list, and also appears in the Assigned list.

  6. Choose OK to close the Assign Users to presentation name dialog box.

  7. Choose the Activate button.

    If an end user is currently viewing the myAccess Links page when you assign that user to the presentation, he or she must first refresh the page to access the presentation.
