Printers

Description

Soffid lets administrator users manage system printers. A printer must always be attached to a host. A network attached printer is composed of a host (network print server) and a printer (printer queue).

Printers can be assigned to specific users or to user groups. The effective assignment can be done on session startup by using a Single Sign On client script. To do that, it is necessary to add a script on a Login entry point with type x-mazinger-script.

  1. Hosts
