Application access tree


The entry points could be to connect to information systems defined on Soffid, or to connect to other applications. These applications can be Web applications or Native applications. Each information systems can have one or more application entry points.

The entry points are managed in a tree structure, that allows creating new menus and new application access.

Each member of the tree can be tied to a list of users, accounts groups, or roles. Also, you can choose if the application menu entry will be visible or not by not authorized users.

After logging on to a managed workstation, the system will apply such restrictions and will update the Windows or Linux start menu.

Each application entry point will have different execution methods for full managed workstations, loosely managed workstations, or external devices. Each of them can be a web browser URL or a javascript piece.

Each application entry point can have a single sign on rule. Those roles are fully explained at the ESSO reference guide. For more information you can visit the ESSO chapter.

The defined entry points allow to final users open applications from the self service portal. For more information can visit My Applications page.
