Access control based on groups holding a special character, is not granted in an offline state

Version 5

    Problem

    Consider the following Ivanti Workspace Control scenario:

     

    • Access Control to an object (E.g. Environment Variable, Application, User Settings etc.) is based on an Active Directory Group which contains one or more special characters.
    • The user is a member of the Active Directory Group.
    • The user session is started in an offline situation.

     

    In this scenario, the access to the configured object is not granted to the user.

     

    In case the user session is started as an online session, the access of the object is granted to the user.

     

     

    Cause

    In an offline situation, the file for cached credentials (CCX) is used to read the group membership. The special characters are incorrectly translated in the CCX file.

     

     

    Solution

    This issue is resolved in Ivanti Workspace Control 10.2.900.0.
