In many organizations, different people need to be involved in the process of defining and maintaining Active Directory service users for the Metasys system.

IT and Active Directory service Administrators create, delete, and update accounts in Active Directory service, including the provision of a Service Account for use by the Metasys system. They manage Active Directory service user account passwords, password policies, and account policies.

Metasys Administrators add existing Active Directory service users to the Metasys system, and assign Metasys system privileges using the Security Administrator System.

Once you add an Active Directory service user to Metasys, the user is assigned privileges in the same manner as a local Metasys user. In fact, a user’s local Metasys account can be disabled or deleted once their Active Directory service user account is established, unless there is an important reason for a user to have two accounts. An audit record is created whenever an Active Directory service user is added to or removed from the Metasys system.
