It is possible for administrators to control if clipboard data can be passed between the users’ desktops and the Silo application. 

Technical Details

This feature can be managed by a Silo Administrator that can edit Policies. This policy is located in Data Transfer>Copy/Paste. By default, the policy does not enable copying and pasting bidirectionally. This policy can be enabled at a top level org to apply to all users or at a sub org level to only apply to a sub group of users.

There are two options which can be controlled.  None, one, or both may be enabled:

  • Do not allow users to copy content from the Authentic8 environment to the client machine
  • Do not allow users to copy content from the client machine to the Authentic8 environment


Additional Notes  

Silo and Toolbox handle copy-and-paste commands differently

  • When enabled, Silo and toolbox will allow users to copy and paste text and binary files (such as images)*

*Notes Toolbox sessions are considered a different Device than Silo with respect to the policy. Enabling either policy means that you will not be able to copy between Toolbox and Silo.
