The Directory Management section of the Web Interface allows you to browse for, and administer, directory objects in your organization. You can navigate through containers in the directory; view, filter and select objects held in the container; and apply commands to the selected object or container.
To perform a management task
- On the Navigation bar, click Directory Management.
- On the Views tab in the Browse pane, click one of the following:
- In the list of objects, do one of the following:
- To navigate to a container, such as an organizational unit, click the name of that container.
- To perform a command that applies to the current container, click that command in the Command pane under the name of the current container.
- To perform a command on a particular object held in the current container, select the check box next to the name of that object, and then click the command in the top area of the Command pane, under the name of the object.
- To perform a command on two or more objects at a time, select the check box next to the name of each object, and then click the command in the top area of the Command pane.
When you perform a management tasks, the Web Interface supplements and restricts your input based on policies and permissions defined in Active Roles. The Web Interface displays the data generated by policies, and prevents the input of data that would cause policy violations. The following rules apply:
- If a policy requires that a value be specified for a particular property, the name of the field for that property is marked with an asterisk (*).
- If a policy imposes any restrictions on a property, an information icon is displayed next to the name of the field for that property. Click the icon to view policy information, which you can use to enter an acceptable value.
- When you specify a property value that violates a policy, and click Save, the Web Interface displays an error message. Review the error message and correct your input.
- Pages for object creation must include the entries for all required properties. Otherwise, the Web Interface fails to create the object. For information on how to configure forms, see “Configuring forms” in the Active Roles Web Interface Administration Guide.
- Object property pages display the values of the properties for which you have the Read permission. You can modify only those properties for which you have the Write permission. The properties for which you only have the Read permission are displayed as read-only.
- The Command pane includes only the commands that you are permitted to use.
- The list of objects includes only the objects that you are permitted to view.
