- Elevating the download of web components
Components, such as ActiveX controls, need to be downloaded and installed to run. A standard user will typically need an elevated level of permission to allow the component to install. The new functionality will give Application Manager the ability to elevate user’s rights to successfully install allowed ActiveX controls and web downloads.
- Elevating for application Install Some ActiveX controls are just boot-straps that install a ‘downloader’ application. These downloader applications also need to be elevated and be installed by the Administrator. The new functionality changes the actual owner of the token, as opposed to just adding it to the Administrator group. This is a subtle difference that is required to allow this feature to co-exist with typical Application Managers Trusted Ownership rules.
- Configuration snippets To allow an application to download and install there are a number of entries that need to be added to the Application Manager configuration. We will supply preconfigured pieces of configurations (snippets) that can be imported into an existing, open configuration which will populate all the areas that need setting, combining the application entitlement and user rights entitlement
- User Interface Modernization The Application Manager User Interface has been brought up to date with a new look and feel and an improved user experience
