PSIcapture Security: User Roles


Security roles help define specific access to product areas for PSIcapture users. Administrators can fine-tune what modules, functions, and even capture profiles can be accessed by specific users. Explore the guide below to learn more about how to blend Windows LDAP and/or custom user security options as a PSIcapture Administrator.

Enable Automatic User Registration dictates whether PSIcapture will automatically login any users who are new to a particular computer. When set to Yes, a default role may be assigned to this new user's login by selecting from Assign New Users to Role drop-down list. When set to No Permissions, these new users will not be able to use PSIcapture until an administrator reassigns them new permissions and roles.
