Customize Group and User Settings

Using the Reflection for Secure IT console, you can customize file access and transfer rights for users and groups who have been provisioned using the Web Edition User Manager.

  • To make customizations for users who have been added to the built-in Reflection directory, use the domain name Reflection.
  • To make customizations for users in an added LDAP server, use the Domain name you specified when you added the LDAP server to User Manager.

The general procedures are outlined below. For a specific example, see Set Transfer Permissions for a User Group.

To create a subconfiguration with custom transfer settings for a user or group

  1. From the Configuration tab of the Reflection for Secure IT console, click either Group Configuration or User Configuration.
  2. For the group or user type, select Domain.

    For groups or users in the built-in Reflection directory, specify Reflection for the domain name.

    For groups and users in an added LDAP Server, specify the domain name for that server.

  3. Enter the name of the user or group you want to customize.
  4. Click any of the available options on the left side of the subconfiguration dialog box to configure options that will be applied to the specified user or group.
  5. Click OK to close the open dialog boxes.
  6. Save your settings (File > Save Settings).

To control server access for a user or group

  1. From the Configuration tab of the Reflection for Secure IT console, click either Group Access Control or User Access Control.
  2. Click Add and enter the user or group name using the following format, replacing <name> with the user or group name.

    <domain>/<name>

  3. Specify the access setting for this user or group (allow or deny) and click OK.

    For information about how allow and deny settings affect user access, see the Reflection for Secure IT help topics "Controlling Access by User" and "Controlling Access by Group."

  4. Save your settings (File > Save Settings).
