User Privileges Template

This template creates a configuration that checks the privileges of the user logged into the local device. It can be found in the COMPLIANCE CHECK category when filtered for CLOUD platform.

If the privileges of the user logged into the local device are privileged without protection, you can choose between two actions:

  • Sets the Compliance State in Azure AD based on the privileges of the user logged into the local device.
  • Sets an Extension Attribute in Azure AD based on the privileges of the user logged into the local device.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your cloud environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your cloud environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started guide.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:

Context Description Customizations
User Privileges Defines the privileges of the user logged into the local device. None
Note:
  • If a context is not needed, it can be deactivated or deleted. In addition, the corresponding task sequence within the relevant action must be deleted too.

Step 3: Actions

The template includes a notifying action that displays a message to the user about a context status and an enforcement action that actively controls access to the session. By default, only the notifying action is enabled and the enforcement action is disabled.

Action Description Default State Customizations
User Privilege - Conditional Access - Enforcement - Compliance State Sets the Compliance State in Azure AD based on the privileges of the user logged into the local device. Deactivated None
User Privilege - Conditional Access - Enforcement - Extension Attribute
 
 
 
Sets an Extension Attribute in Azure AD based on the privileges of the user logged into the local device.
 
 
 
Deactivated
 
 
 
You may want to update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

Azure AD Set Extension Attribute [1]
Set Extension Attribute may be changed to a value suitable for your organisation.
Note:
  • If both actions have been disabled, the contexts will still be created.
  • If both actions have been activated, then both the Compliance State and the Extension Attribute will be updated.
