Parameters associated with the use of SSOWatch module of Quest ESSO.
In the tree structure of the Directory panel, select the wanted user.
You can also select a group of users by selecting a folder containing the wanted users. Note that this is not possible if the Quest ESSO data is separated from other data (Fedora Directory server in cooperative mode, or Active Directory + ADAM infrastructure for example).

The Security Profiles tab appears.
Click the button to display and if necessary modify the selected user security profile.
Click Apply.

6.2.4 Declaring a User as an Administrator

If the access to Quest ESSO Console calls for a strong authentication facility, you must assign a smart card to the user, through the Smart Card tab, as described in Section 8., "Managing Smart Cards".

6.2.5 Assigning/Forbidding Access Points to a User

This section describes how to authorize a user to log-on an access point, from the user object. This access is checked by Advanced Login or by the GINA of the workstation client. A user not authorized attempting to logon a workstation will obtain the following message "You are not authorized to log in on this access point".
In the tree structure of the Directory panel, select the wanted user.
Click the Access Points tab.
The Access Points tab appears.
If the Allow on all Access Points parameter of the user security profile associated with this user is selected (for details see Section, "Authentication Tab"), you can let this tab blank to authorize all the access points of the directory domain for the selected users. If you want to define authorized/forbidden access points, do the following:
Click the Add/Remove buttons to select the access points that you want to be accessible to the selected application.
If you have added a group of access points and you want to forbid one or more access point(s) of this group, use the
Allow and Forbid buttons.
To prevent the user from accessing some of the software modules installed on the access point (Advanced Login, Quest ESSO Console, SSOWatch or Enterprise SSO Studio), use the Modules button.
The Quest ESSO Controller uses the following algorithm to assign or forbid access points to users:
