A user/developer sometimes has to update/add destination rules to a project but may not have access to the Active Directory. It is possible to run the K2.net™ 2003 Studio under another user’s credentials and gain access to the Active Directory via this user’s permissions.

K2.net™ 2003 Studio makes use of Integrated Windows Authentication. For a user to setup destination rules and queues, he needs to have access privileges to the Active Directory.

It is possible to run the K2.net™ 2003 Studio under another user’s credentials and gain access to the Active Directory via this user’s permissions.
