Using predefined Access Templates

Role-based Administration > Access Template management tasks > Using predefined Access Templates

Active Roles offers an extensive suite of preconfigured Access Templates that represent typical administrative roles, enabling the correct level of administrative authority to be delegated quickly and consistently.

The predefined Access Templates are located in containers under Configuration/Access Templates in theActive Roles console. You can display a list of Access Templates in the details pane by expanding Configuration | Access Templates and then selecting one of these containers in the console tree:

  • Active Directory
  • Azure
  • Computer Resources
  • Configuration
  • Exchange
  • User Self-management

Active Directory

You can use Access Templates from the Active Directory container to delegate Active Directory data management tasks and Active Directory service management tasks, such as:

  • User and group management
  • Management of computer, printer queue, or shared folder objects
  • Forest and domain configuration management

This container includes templates that allow for a wide range of administrative tasks and templates that limit access to selected properties of Active Directory objects.



You can use Access Templates from the Azure container to delegate management tasks on containers performing Azure related operations in hybrid environment, such as:

  • Azure Configuration 
  • Azure User management tasks 
  • Azure Group Management tasks


You can use Access Templates from the AD LDS (ADAM) container to delegate data management tasks on the following object types in Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS):

  • AD LDS Container
  • AD LDS Group
  • AD LDS Organizational Unit (OU)
  • AD LDS User

For instructions on how to view or set permissions on AD LDS objects, refer to the AD LDS Data Management chapter, later in this document.
