User Guide

Welcome to the User Guide for WANdisco's Access Control Plus.

Access Control Plus delivers a single, easy-to-use point-and-click solution that fully protects valuable source code across all of your Subversion and Git repositories. It is designed to work in conjunction with WANdisco's SCM replication products or as a standalone solution. Integration with LDAP and Active Directory ensures that users are automatically assigned to the Subversion and Git teams that correspond to their authentication server groups. Security administrators can delegate authority to team leads to further reduce administrative overhead.
