Step 3: Applying the Policy Object

Step 3: Applying the Policy Object

You can apply the Policy Object by using the Enforce Policy page in the New Provisioning Policy Object wizard, or you can complete the wizard and then use the Enforce Policy command on the domain, OU, or Managed Unit where you want to apply the policy.

For more information on how to apply a Policy Object, see Applying Policy Objects and Managing policy scope earlier in this chapter.

User Account Deprovisioning

Policies of this category are intended to automate the following deprovisioning-related tasks on user accounts:

  • Disable the user account
  • Set the user password to a random value
  • Set the user’s logon names to random values
  • Rename the user account
  • Modify other properties of the user account

When configuring a policy of this category, you specify how you want Active Roles to modify the user’s account in Active Directory upon a request to deprovision a user so that once the deprovision operation is completed, the deprovisioned user cannot log on to the network.

You may also configure a policy to update any user properties, such as those that regulate users’ membership in Active Roles Managed Units. In this way the policy can automate the addition or removal of deprovisioned users from Managed Units.

How this policy works

When processing a request to deprovision a user, Active Roles uses this policy to modify the user’s account so that once the user has been deprovisioned, he or she cannot log on to the network.

A policy can also be configured to update user accounts. Depending on the policy configuration, each policy-based update results in the following:

  • Certain portions of account information are removed from the directory by resetting specified properties to “empty” values.
  • Certain properties of user accounts are set to new, non-empty values.
  • A policy can be configured so that new property values include:
  • Properties of the user account being deprovisioned, retrieved from the directory prior to starting the process of the user deprovisioning
  • Properties of the user who originated the deprovisioning request
  • Date and time when the user was deprovisioned

Thus, when deprovisioning a user, Active Roles modifies the user’s account in Active Directory as determined by the User Account Deprovisioning policy that is in effect.

How to configure a User Account Deprovisioning policy

To configure a User Account Deprovisioning policy, select User Account Deprovisioning on the Policy to Configure page in the New Deprovisioning Policy Object wizard or in the Add Deprovisioning Policy wizard. Then, click Next to display the Options to Prevent Logon page.

Figure 67: User Account Deprovisioning

On this page, you can select options that make the account ineligible for logon. The option names are self-explanatory:

  • Disable the user account
  • Set the user’s password to a random value
  • Set the user logon name to a random value
  • Set the user logon name (pre-Windows 2000) to a random value

Select check boxes next to the options you want the policy to apply.

By selecting the Rename the user account to check box, you direct the policy to change the user name of the account. This option allows you to configure a property update rule that specifies how to modify the user name. The following subsection provides instructions on how to configure a property update rule, taking the user name as the example.
