Removing User Access to Application Features

By removing access to select Reflection application features, you can disable the functionality of features you do not want to support.

There are three ways to remove application features:

  • Group Policy
    Use Microsoft Group Policy Object editor, along with the .ADM and .ADMX files installed with Reflection to create a policy, and then deploy the policy.


  • The Permissions Manager
    Open Permissions Manager from a workstation installation directory, remove access to the features, and then save the results as an access file. Then, you can deploy the access file by adding it to a companion install package, and deploying the companion install package.


  • The Attachmate Customization Tool
    Create a companion database, open Permissions Manager from the Attachmate Customization Tool interface. Remove access to the features, save the companion install package, and then deploy the companion install package.


  • Caution! Either method of customizing access files is valid — using the Attachmate Customization Tool or Permissions Manager directly. However, you should never use both methods.
  • The Permissions Manager tool only disables access to features; it does not remove disabled controls from the user interface. To remove disabled controls, create a customized theme and distribute it in a companion install package.
