The property screens for a security manager definition can be used for adding, editing and deleting user, group and resource definitions held in the associated external security manager (ESM), and for specifying resource permissions. This functionality is dependent on the ESM module, with which you connect to the ESM, providing support, and on the ESM honouring the requests submitted through these screens. Where such support is not available, users, groups and resources must be managed through the tools provided with your external security manager. Please check the documentation provided with your ESM module for details.
In addition to the conditions listed above, the security manager definition must be included in the security manager list that is used by MF Directory Server.
