Summary:

MassTransit 6.0 implements the automatic Active Directory account management feature that allows setting up MassTransit contacts, forwarding privileges and so on automatically, based on existing Active Directory groups.

MassTransit 6.0 allows you to leverage the groups in your Active Directory tree to automatically create accounts and assign forwarding privileges. All automatically created MassTransit contacts will be of the Web Client type. Any existing Active Directory group can be designated as a part of the MassTransit Master List or the MassTransit Distribution List or both.

The feature is controlled by the configuration parameters in the MassTransitEngine.cfg configuration file. For more information about configuration of MDL and MML groups see INFO: Automatic Active Directory Account Management With MassTransit knowledge base article.

Description:

The new MassTransit Distribution List (MDL) capability defines who can send files to whom. The MDL is a regular Active Directory Security Group containing users and other groups. It can be an existing group or a specially created group. For members of the MDL MassTransit creates accounts on demand, only when they are needed, and makes these users available as valid destinations for files to be transferred. These on demand accounts are automatically purged after a period of time and are recreated when needed.

Users that are members of an AD group, which is part of the MDL, can send files to the other members of the same AD group and to any users on child levels. Bellow are three examples of MDL configuration that will help you understand how this feature works.

Example1:

In the first example, the MassTransit Distribution List - "MDL Group A" contains two AD groups - "Group Dog" and "Group Cat". Each of the two groups has two members. The members of "Group Dog" can send files only to each other. The same is valid for the members of "Group Cat".

For example: "Gracy AD user" can send files only to "Bob AD user".

Example2:

In the second example, the MassTransit Distribution List - "MDL Group A" contains two AD groups - "Group Dog" and "Group Cat" and two AD users - "Jake AD user" and "Rex AD user". These users can send files to each other, as well as to all users that are on child tree levels - the members of "Group Dog" and "Group Cat". The members of "Group Dog" can send files only to each other. The same is valid for the members of "Group Cat".

For example: "Rex AD user" can send files to " Jake AD user", "Gracy AD user", "Bob AD user", "Tim AD user", and "John AD user". "Tim AD user" can send files only to "John AD user".

Example3:

In the third example, there is one additional AD group - "Group Snake" which belongs to "Group Dog". "Sammy AD user" and "Sally AD user" are on the lowest tree level of the MDL, so they can send files only to each other. In contrast of the previous example, users from "Group Dog" can send files not only to each other but to members of "Group Snake" as well, since it is also a member of "Grou Dog". "Rex AD user" and "Jake AD user" can send to all users.

For example: "Bob AD user" can send files to "Gracy AD user", "Sammy AD user" and "Sally AD user". "Tim AD user" can send files only to "John AD user", since "Sammy AD user" and "Sally AD user" are not on a child tree level.
