During the configuration of a DeployStudio Server you are asked about access groups. The access groups consist of and control the following:

  • A single group of users allowed to configure a server using DeployStudio Assistant.
  • A single group of users allowed to connect to a server using the DeployStudio Admin
  • Several groups of users allowed to connect to a server using the Runtime app

If you've defined several groups for the Runtime app, you'll be able to limit access to a specific workflow or disk image to one of these groups (using DeployStudio Admin).

Also, only the groups you add here are the ones you can pick from to limit access to in the DeployStudio Admin. i.e. if you add a group called 'dsruntime' to be allowed to connect to the runtime, then you will only see that group when limiting images, scripts, etc.

Groups are defined in Open Directory. You cannot use Active Directory groups at this time.
