Bookmarks are objects that enable you to connect to a location or application conveniently and quickly. The Virtual Office Bookmark system allows bookmarks to be created at the group and user levels. The Administrator can create both group and user bookmarks which applies to applicable users while individual users can create only personal (user-level) bookmarks.
Because bookmarks are stored within the security appliance’s local configuration files, it is necessary for group and user bookmarks to be correlated to defined group and user entities. When working with local groups and users (LocalDomain), this is automated because the Administrator must manually define the groups and users on the device. Similarly, when working with external groups (not LocalDomain), the correlation is automated because creating an external domain creates a corresponding local group.
However, when working with external users, a local user entity must exist so that any user-created (personal) bookmarks can be stored within the SMA appliance’s configuration files. The need to store bookmarks on the SMA appliance itself is because LDAP, RADIUS, and NT authentication external domains do not provide a direct facility to store such information as bookmarks.
Rather than requiring Administrators to manually create local users for external domain users wishing to use personal bookmarks, Secure Mobile Access automatically creates a corresponding local user entity when an external domain user logs in to the Virtual Office.
