This class is aimed at the IT Teams who administer the Archer Server and Server Side Functions. In many companies, due to segregation of responsibilities, these individuals do not also perform day to day Archer Admin Tasks covered by the Archer Admin I and Admin II classes.

In this class you will learn how to configure LDAP Integration, SSO, SQL Maintenance, and Archer Control Panel Settings. You will also learn Packaging, installation of Archer Updates, License Activation and Troubleshooting tips and tricks.
