CW LMS 4 integration with ACS

Does anybody know if, when using LMS4, it's needed to register the applications in ACS as it was in earlier versions? I know the new version doesn't use the same application scheme as the old one, but I'd like to make sure. I guess this is done now using the built in Role Management setup, right?

Thanks in advance.

Pablo.

Re: CW LMS 4 integration with ACS

No, you are correct, it is not needed anymore to register LMS applications with ACS to get RBAC (role based access control) in LMS; the authorization is now part of LMS itself;
while it is not necessary, you can still use ACS for authentication (amongst some other mechanisms)
