Active Roles offers a convenient, easy-to-use, customizable Web Interface that enables authorized users to perform day-to-day administrative tasks, including user management tasks such as modifying personal data or adding users to groups. Via the Web Interface, an intranet user can connect to Active Roles using a web browser. A user sees only the commands, directory objects, and object properties to which the user’s role provides administrative access.
By default, the Web Interface includes three different sites: the Administration Site, the Helpdesk Site, and the Self-Service Site. The Administration Site supports a rich variety of administrative tasks, while the Helpdesk Site supports a simplified set of tasks, mostly aimed for resolving support tickets. Finally, the Self-Service Site is intented for users to manage their own personal accounts.
The Web Interface also allows setting the user interface language according to your preferences. The language setting has effect on all menus, commands, and forms that come with the Web Interface, as well as the tooltips. As such, users can work with the Web Interface in their own language.
The Web Interface delivers a reliable, comprehensive solution for users who have administrative access to Active Roles to modify commands that the Web Interface provides for without writing a single line of code, and enables such users to add and remove commands on menus, and modify command pages by adding and removing fields that display property values. For information on how to customize the Web Interface, refer to the Active Roles Web Interface Configuration Guide.
