Managing device-user relationship
A User is any person that has a "relation" with the respective computer, that is, a user that can log on to the Device to execute operations on it. Devices can be assigned to either primary user or secondary users. You can assign or unassign these types of users to the selected device by creating a relationship between the two objects. Every time a user-device relation is modified the user will be automatically assigned any missing operational rules that come with the new relation or be unassigned form those not conforming to his new relation.
