5 Managing Security Profiles

Upon the installation of the Quest ESSO Controller, default security profiles are created. These objects are required to manage the target objects, which are users, access points and applications.
To optimize network traffic, you can use the update management feature. By default, the Quest ESSO workstations retrieve the whole SSO configuration periodically. The update management feature allows you to post an update, which generates a unique identifier. The workstations retrieve the application data and this identifier. As long as the identifier is unchanged between the directory and the cache of the workstations, the workstations do not update their SSO configurations.
To Enable/Disable the update management feature, in the File menu of Quest ESSO Console select Manage updates. When a workstation runs an update, it retrieves the entire configuration (and not only the configuration corresponding to the last posted update). So this feature does not avoid workstations retrieving the applications configured by administrators after the last posted update if the data on the workstation is older than the last posted update.
