6 Managing Directory Objects

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.

6.1 Managing Applications

The technical reference is a technical description of an application. This allows you to configure the accesses to this application, and particularly to enable the single sign-on. The creation of technical references is described in SSOWatch Administrator Guide.
