Problem:

I have all non admin users and I would like them to have rights to install Firefox and play back with FlexApp UIA.


Symptoms:

The user's are non admins and they don't have any rights to install applications.

 

Possible Resolution(s):


There are two ways to allow users install certain apps and be captured by FlexApp UIA

 

Option A.To allow users install apps from certain publisher

Open ProfileUnity console, Edit the configuration, Open "Privilege Elevation", "Add Privilege Elevation Rule"

    • Action: Allow
    • Match: Signed
    • Value: Mozilla Corporation

Example:

Save, Update and download new INI to your netlogon\ProfileUnity directory

Verify that the elevated application has a Valid Certificate and that name is taken from "Digital Signature Details", Name field:

Example of valid Name Field:

Example of Valid Certificate:

Note: If the Certificate date expires the application's installer will not be elevated thus user's will not be able to install the application.

Option B. To allow users to install from certain directory

Open ProfileUnity console, Edit the configuration, Open "Privilege Elevation", "Add Privilege Elevation Rule"

    • Action: Allow
    • Match: Contains
    • Value: \\Servername\AllowedApps\

Example:

Note: Only applications located in \\Servername\AllowedApps\ can be installed by the user.
