Does a service account require the interactive logon privilege?

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Cloud
  • Hybrid
  • On Premises
  • Version Affected:  All


    Service accounts usually have additional permissions allowing the accounts to do extra work that a normal user usually is not allowed to do.



    Corporate policy states that service accounts should not be allowed to log on interactively.



    Group Policy can be enabled either locally or domain wide to disable the interactive logon settings. See the image below to:

       "Deny log on locally"

       "Deny log on through Remote Desktop Service"
