Account Management Feature:
---------------------------
Newly added to 8.5.1 to support LotusLive Notes 2.
Support for managed accounts was added in Notes 8.5.2 release. Changes were made in Notes 8.5.2 embedded ST client to allow responding to changes in the accounts framework, The managed accounts are needed to simplify linking account, which is needed for SAML authentication a key part of Lotus Live Notes 2 (LLN2) The ST embedded code handles changes to the account store that happens when ST is active or not, and Adds/Changes/Deletions of a managed Account need to be reflected in the community's that ST is using.
Managed accounts solves the problem that Notes Admin can not configure the ST configuration for the users via the Domino admin tools, without pushing changes in via the property change or pre-configuring the client before installing it. Prior to managed accounts, admins can not configure all the properties of the primary community, and they can not configure a secondary community at all. Using the managed accounts the Admin will be able to using the Notes Admin UI to configure all the community properties for the end user.
