LDAP groups

UFT Mobile 3.5 introduces support for LDAP groups, to allow centralized, more efficient user management. The administrator can grant an LDAP group access to relevant devices and applications in the organization, without having to manage permissions for each user separately. When the administrator assigns one or more LDAP groups to a workspace, all the users included in these groups can access the workspace. For details, see Use UFT Mobile with LDAP.
