Restricting 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.
- 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 and 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.
Note: While you will most likely choose to restrict settings and actions via either Group Policy or by deploying Reflection .access permission files – you can use both. Individual permissions are merged with the following precedence (highest to lowest):
- Group Policy – user
- Group Policy – machine
- Local permissions file (.access)
