The Change Tracking log also allows you to examine the changes that a given user made to directory data, that is, the management activity of the user. The management activity retention time depends on the Change Tracking log configuration (see Change-tracking policy earlier in this chapter).
To see what changes were made by a given user, right-click the user object in the Active Roles console and click User Activity.
By default, the User Activity window only displays basic options. You can display more choices by clicking the plus sign (+) in the top-left corner, next to the first column heading.
In the User Activity window, you can find the following information:
The window also includes the same additional sections as the Change History window (see Viewing change history).
The entitlement profile is a list of entitlements, each of which represents authorization to access, use or manage a particular information resource. A resource could be a single object in the directory, such as a user, group, contact or computer object, or it could be a server-based resource, such as an Exchange mailbox, user home folder, Web application or network file share. In case of a server-based resource, entitlement normally takes the form of user attributes or stems from membership in a certain group. In case of a directory object, entitlement refers to the manager or owner rights on that object.
Active Roles provides the ability to view the entitlement profile of any given user, both in the Active Roles console and Web Interface. The entitlement profile is implemented as a configurable report that displays information about resources to which a given user is entitled. Configuration of the entitlement profile specifies what resources are to be listed and what information about each resource is to be displayed in the report. Active Roles provides effective controls to manage configuration of the entitlement profile.
A user’s entitlement profile is essentially a list of information resources to which the user is entitled. The resource can be one of the following:
The way in which a user gets entitled to a given resource depends upon the type of the resource:
The building of a user’s entitlement profile is done by applying entitlement rules to the entitlement target objects specific to that user. If a given entitlement target object matches the entitlement rules for a particular resource, then the user is regarded as entitled to the resource and information about that resource appears in the entitlement profile. The entitlement target object can be one of the following:
Active Roles stores the entitlement rules in configuration objects called entitlement profile specifiers. These objects are essential to the process of building and presenting the entitlement profile.
In Active Roles, entitlement profile specifiers are configuration objects that govern the process of building and presenting the entitlement profile. Each specifier holds information about a single resource that allows Active Roles to determine whether a given user is entitled to the resource and, if the user appears to be entitled, what information about that resource to include in the user’s entitlement profile.
An entitlement profile specifier holds the following information:
The following topics elaborate on each of these information blocks.
