2 The Fast User Switching (FUS) Feature
2.1 Fast User Switching - Overview and Use
Quest ESSO Fast User Switching (FUS) is a functionality that allows multiple users to easily share the same workstation, by allowing them to change the SSO context quickly, without closing the Windows session.
2.1.2 Fast User Switching Modes
In Hierarchized Access FUS and Shared Access FUS
, the access to the Windows session is protected: the Windows session locking and unlocking is managed by Authentication Manager. All authentication methods can be used, but if an authentication device is used, it ensures that when a user removes his/her device, the session is automatically locked. If the same user comes back to the same workstation, he/she will find his/her applications still open.
In Public Access FUS and Biometric public access FUS
, the access to the Windows session is not protected: the session is the same for all users, but each user can access his/her own applications.
You can also use
FUS with Autologon. You can configure Windows to automate the logon process by storing authentication data in the registry database. This feature allows any user to start a workstation in public access and use the account configured for automatic logon.
