How to Configure a Domain User or Group
The deployment settings enable you to control which users or groups can access the MED-V workspace, as well as how long the MED-V workspace can be utilized and whether it can be used offline. You can also configure additional rules to control access between the MED-V workspace and the host.
All MED-V workspace permissions are configured in the Policy module, on the Deployment tab.
To allow users to utilize the MED-V workspace, you must first add domain users or groups to the MED-V workspace permissions. You can then set permissions for each user or group.
