Kickstart Your Splashtop Enterprise Team

Splashtop Enterprise is designed for high performance remote access and remote support while meeting your organization's advanced management and security needs. It is easy to set up and offers the ultimate flexibility and scalability for businesses and enterprises of all sizes.

Use this guide below to get started and explore the remote access, endpoint management, service desk support and security capabilities.

 

For IT Admins - Getting Set Up and Team Management

Set up Single Sign-On

Single Sign-On

Set up SSO integration to allow users to authenticate through Splashtop using their centralized credentials. If you choose not to set up SSO, go to the Inviting Users section below.

  1. Apply for a new SSO method for your IDP in the Splashtop web console. Detailed instructions on certain IDP services, such as Azure AD, OKTA, ADFS, JumpCloud, OneLogin, can be found here:
    Single Sign-On (SSO)
  2. Our validation team will reach out to you with instructions to verify your domain access and activate your SSO method.
  3. (Recommended) Set up SCIM provisioning (For AzureAD, Okta, and JumpCloud) to automatically provision and sync users and groups from your IDP console.
  4. (Recommended) Import SSO users by CSV file if you are unable to use SCIM provisioning, to automatically onboard users into specified user groups. This also skips the invitation email process.

View this article to read the limitations with SSO.

 

Inviting Users and Assigning Roles
Invite users by going to Management > Users > Invite Users.
Assign team roles, user groups, and SSO authentication methods during the invitation process or later. You can invite up to 500 email addresses in each invitation window.

If SSO is not enabled, users will set up their own Splashtop account password upon invitation.

 

User Roles

Owner: The Owner is the highest level of authority and can perform any functions in Splashtop, including (but not limited to) inviting users, changing roles, viewing anyone’s connection history, managing computers, changing access permissions and changing team settings. The team Owner is the only user who has access to the team subscription/payment info.

Super Admin: The Super Admin is an elevated role above Admin, who can have the same permissions as the Owner above, including accessing the Team Settings tab and changing users’ roles. They cannot access subscription/payment info.

Admin: The Admin role has the same permissions as the Owner above, except they cannot access subscription/payment info, the Team Settings tab, and cannot change users’ roles.

Group Admin: Group admin is a limited Admin role that gives a user admin privilege over specific user and/or computer groups. This allows them to add/remove users & computers only for the groups that are authorized.

Member: Members are general users who have been added to the team to allow remote access. They only have access to computers that they are granted permission for, and can check their own status, account info, team info, and logs. They can remove themselves (“quit”) from a team in the Account Summary tab.

Grouping

With Splashtop, you can group your users and computers for easier management and access permission control. Each user or computer can only belong to one group. However, users can have access to multiple computer groups.

Get started by going to Management > Grouping.

grouping_en-us.PNG

You can create 3 types of groups: 

  • User-only group
  • Computer-only group
  • User & Computer group 

A user-only group can only consist of users. Grouping users is useful for setting access permissions for multiple users at a time. It is also useful for automatically applying access permissions to a new user. 

A computer-only group can only consist of computers. Grouping computers helps to organize a large computer list for easier navigation. It can also make assigning access permissions easier – you can grant a user access to an entire group of computers. 

A user & computer group is a shortcut for group-based access control. It can consist of both users and computers. By default, all users in this group can access all computers in this group. 

Set this group as a connection pool will enable the Connection Pool feature for the computer group. Users can click the “Connect” button to connect to any available computer in the group. This is useful for scenarios such as RDP pools, computer labs, and more where it doesn’t matter which computer the user connects to.

Deploying Computers

Install Splashtop Streamer on your endpoints to make them remotely accessible.

  1. Go to my.splashtop.com / my.splashtop.eu > Management > Deployment to create a deployment package.

    When creating the deployment package, you have the option of specifying default settings, including computer naming rule, security settings, sound re-direction, and more. Alternatively, you can use the default package created by Splashtop.
  2. Once the package is created, click Deploy to view the installation options.

  3. (Option 1) Share the link to allow a user to download and install the streamer for you.
    (Option 2) Choose a platform and download the installer file directly.

    Multiple installer options are offered for Windows, Mac, Android, and Linux.

Access Permissions & Scheduling

Access Permissions

Access permissions determine which computers a user will have access to.
Go to Management > Users, click on the gear icon to the right of a user or user group, and choose Access Permission to configure permissions for a single user or a group of users.

access-gear_en-us.PNG

By default, when a user is invited:

  • Admins have access to All Computers
  • Members have access to No Computers if they are not invited into a group
  • Members have access based on the group’s permission when assigned or invited to a group 

set_access_permission_en-us.png

To give a user or user group access to multiple computers or computer groups, select Only specific computers and computer groups.

 

Scheduled Access

While Access Permissions allow users to access endpoints at any time unattended, Schedules Access can be configured to allow access on a time-slot basis. 

schedule_en-us.PNG

Note:

  • Scheduled Access is granted in addition to existing user/group access permissions that are set under Management > Users – they do NOT override existing user/group access permissions.
  • For users who only need scheduled remote access, set their access permission under Management > Users to “No Computers”.
