Remote Desktop Manager for Mac allows for advanced user right management allowing you to control how a session is employed by each user. Note that some visibility control will depend on the active data source. There is currently no way to inherit security rights from a group as they must be assigned individually for each user. If using the Devolutions Server you will then be able to use Integrated Security with Active Directory.

This feature requires an Advanced Data Source.

In order to create users and assign rights, you must be administrator of not only Remote Desktop Manager for Mac, but also of the underlying database.
