Active Roles Events

Active Roles Tracking Log/Active Roles Events/
  • Active Roles startup failures  Lists occurrences of a situation where Active Roles Administration Service failed to start, along with information about the cause of each failure (failure reason). You can filter the list by time period when startup failures occurred.
  • Active Roles event statistics   Lists Active Roles events and groups them by date (when the events occurred), by user (who initiated events), by computer (where events were logged), or by event category. You can filter the list by time period, event category and event ID.

Active Roles Configuration Changes

Active Roles Tracking Log/Active Roles Configuration Changes/
  • Control Delegation  Lists Active Roles Access Templates that are applied to configure administrative permissions in Active Roles. For each Access Template, the report lists the objects to which the Access Template is linked, and informs of when and by whom the Access Template link was created. You can filter the list by Access Template name, name of the object to which the Access Template is linked, time period when the link was created, and name of the user who created the link.
  • Policy Enforcement  Lists Active Roles Policy Objects that are applied to configure administrative policy in Active Roles. For each Policy Object, the report lists the objects to which the Policy Object is linked, and informs of when and by whom the Policy Object link was created. You can filter the list by Policy Object name, name of the object to which the Policy Object is linked, time period when the link was created, and name of the user who created the link.

Active Roles Workflow

Active Roles Tracking Log/Active Roles Workflow/
  • Approvals and Rejections  Lists operation requests that were submitted via Active Roles and approved or rejected during the specified period of time, allowing you to examine approver actions. You can filter the list by name of the person who approved or rejected requests (approver), name of the person whose requests were subject to approval (initiator), approval decision (approved or rejected requests), and name and location of operation target objects. You can group the list by approver, initiator, or operation target object.
  • Workflow Monitoring  Lists events specific to Active Roles workflow and groups them by operation that started workflow or by name of workflow, allowing you to monitor workflow instances. For each workflow instance, the report identifies the operation request that caused the instance to start, and lists the date and time that the instance was started, the person who submitted the operation request (initiator), the operation target object, the server intended to perform the request, along with all events that occurred during the lifetime of the workflow instance. You can filter the list of workflow instances by various parameters, such as date and time, operation ID, workflow name, operation initiator, target object, event category, and event ID.

Administrative Roles

Administrative Roles/
  • Access Template Permissions  Lists Active Roles Access Templates, allowing you to examine each Access Template in detail. You can view the name, location and description the Access Template, along with all permission entries held in the Access Template.
  • Access Template summary  Lists Active Roles Access Templates along with quantitative information regarding Access Template links. For each Access Template, this report allows you to determine the number of links that use the Access Template and the number of objects (Trustees and Containers) to which the Access Template is linked.
  • Access Templates linked to Managed Units  Lists Active Roles Access Templates that are linked to Active Roles Managed Units. Identifies the name, location and description of each Access Template along with the fully qualified name of every Managed Unit to which the Access Template is linked. You can extend the list to include both the Managed Units to which the Access Template is linked and the Managed Units that are affected by the Access Template through permission inheritance.
  • Access Templates linked to Organizational Units  Lists Active Roles Access Templates that are linked to Active Directory Organizational Units. Identifies the name, location and description of each Access Template along with the fully qualified name of every Organizational Unit to which the Access Template is linked. You can extend the list to include both the Organizational Units to which the Access Template is linked and the Organizational Units that are affected by the Access Template through permission inheritance.
  • Control delegation by object  Lists Active Directory objects to which Active Roles Access Templates are linked. Identifies the name, location and description of each object along with the name of every Access Template linked to that object and the security principal (Trustee) whose administrative permissions are determined by that link through direct assignment (without considering permission inheritance).
  • Control delegation by object (with group hierarchy)  Lists Active Directory objects to which Active Roles Access Templates are linked. Identifies the name, location and description of each object along with the name of every Access Template linked to that object and the security principals (Trustees) whose administrative permissions are determined by that link through direct assignment or because of group memberships.
  • Control delegation by Trustee  Lists Active Directory security principals (Trustees) that have administrative permissions specified by applying Active Roles Access Templates. Identifies the name of each Trustee along with the name of every Access Template that determines the Trustee’s administrative permissions in Active Roles, as well as the name of the container or leaf object to which the Access Template is linked thereby providing the Trustee with administrative permissions over that container or leaf object.
  • Control delegation by Trustee (with container hierarchy)  Lists security principals (Trustees) that have administrative permissions specified by applying Active Roles Access Templates, and provides detailed information about securable objects and containers for which the Trustee has administrative permissions and Access Templates that determine the Trustee’s permissions. You can filter the list of Trustees by various parameters, including Trustee name and type, securable object or container name and type, Access Template name and type, permission name and type, and permission inheritance type.
