Centrify Identity Service, App EditionQuestion:
Why do Mac computer names show as service users in the Admin Portal?Answer:
When you enroll a Mac, a 'service user' is created in the cloud to allow the Mac itself to make use of certain cloud APIs directly. (machine$)
Service users have limited access to the cloud and its associated APIs (its not a typical user).
The cloud uses computer name to generate the service user name and it will show up in various reports.
