How to assign an App Policy to a Local User Account

App Policies can be assigned to user accounts via group membership. crystal-eye-xdr-app-policy-user-group If you have an App Policy assigned to a particular group that App policy will apply to members of that group. crystal-eye-xdr-app-policy-user-group-2


Alternatively if you have an App Policy assigned to the allusers default group then this App policy applies to all users. You can then further restrict that user account access by removing them from all other user groups.

How to assign an App Policy to an Active Directory Account

When setting up Active Directory Authentication ( you can add the User Defined Groups to the AD Users as a security group. eg. To include the Crystal Eye default user group rp_report_group add rp_report_group as a security group to AD Users and add AD users to the AD Security group in order to access Applications defined under the Crystal Eye default user group rp_report_group. The same will apply for custom Application Policies that are assigned custom Crystal Eye User Groups.
