For authentication and applying policies, you can either manually configure local users with the service, or link your existing LDAP or AD directory services to automatically associate your users with the service. To link your existing LDAP or AD directory services to the service, see LDAP Active Directory and Barracuda Content Shield.
To configure local users manually:
- Go to the USERS page.
- For Configure Users, select Manually Configure Users.
- Click ADD USERS. In the Group Name drop-down, you can either add a new group or select an existing group to which you will assign users. This enables you to apply policies to groups. For example, you might want to apply different policies to the Student and Staff groups, or to the Sales and Finance departments.
In the USER ID text box, enter USER IDs from Windows machines, separating each USER ID with a comma.
- After adding all users for the group, click ADD.
To apply policies by users or groups, see How to Configure Advanced Filtering Policies.
