Computer Resources

You can use Access Templates from the Computer Resources container to delegate management tasks on resources that reside on local computers, such as:

  • Local users and groups
  • Services
  • Network file shares (shared directories)
  • Printers and print jobs

This container includes templates for specific administrative roles, such as Printer Operator or Service Operator, and templates that specify access to selected properties of computer local resources.


You can use Access Templates from the Configuration container to delegate management tasks on Active Roles configuration, such as:

  • Administer Managed Units, Policy Objects, or Access Templates
  • Configure replication (add or remove replication partners)
  • Add or remove managed domains

This container also includes templates governing access to individual properties of Managed Units, Policy Objects and Access Templates.


You can use Access Templates from the Exchange container to delegate the following administrative tasks on Exchange Server recipients:

  • Manage all recipient settings
  • Use Exchange Tasks Wizard
  • Manage e-mail addresses
  • Configure general message settings
  • Configure advanced message settings

This container also includes templates governing access to individual Exchange-related properties of users, groups, and contacts.

User Self-management

You can use Access Templates from the User Self-management container to delegate self-management tasks to end-users (for instance, giving end-users the right to make changes to their own accounts by using the Active Roles Web Interface for self-administration).

You can examine an Access Template in detail by viewing the Properties dialog box: right-click the Access Template and click Properties. The Permissions tab in the Properties dialog box lists all permissions entries defined in the Access Template, and allows you to inspect each entry: select an entry and click the View button.

NOTE: Active Roles does not allow predefined Access Templates to be modified or deleted. If you need to make changes to a predefined Access Template, you should create a copy of the Access Template and then modify the copy as needed. To create a copy, right-click the Access Template and click Copy.

You can apply an Access Template by using the Delegation of Control wizard: right-click the Access Template, click Links, and then, in the Links window, click Add to start the wizard. For more information, see Applying Access Templates later in this chapter.
