Steps for configuring a Group Object Permanent Deletion policy

Rule-based AutoProvisioning and Deprovisioning > Policy configuration tasks > Group Object Permanent Deletion > Steps for configuring a Group Object Permanent Deletion policy

To configure a Group Object Permanent Deletion policy

  1. On the Policy to Configure page, select Group Object Permanent Deletion, and then click Next.
  2. On the Deletion Options page, do one the following, and then click Next:
    • Click Do not automatically delete the object if you want the policy not to delete deprovisioned groups.
    • Click Delete the object after retention period if you want the policy to schedule deprovisioned groups for deletion. Then, in Retention period (days), specify the number of days to retain the deprovisioned group before it is deleted.
    • Click Delete the object to Active Directory Recycle Bin immediately if you want the policy to move deprovisioned group objects to Recycle Bin.

    If you select the third option, you should apply this policy to domains that have Active Directory Recycle Bin enabled; otherwise, the policy will have no effect. With this option, once a group has been deprovisioned, Active Roles deletes the deprovisioned group immediately. In a domain where Active Directory Recycle Bin is enabled, this means that the group object is marked as deleted and moved to a certain container from which it can be restored, if necessary, without any data loss.

  1. On the Enforce Policy window, you can specify objects to which this Policy Object is to be applied:
    • Click Add, and use the Select Objects dialog box to locate and select the objects you want.
  2. Click Next, and then click Finish.

Scenario: Deleting deprovisioned groups

This scenario describes how to configure a policy so that Active Roles permanently deletes deprovisioned groups after the 90 day retention period.

To implement this scenario, you must perform the following actions:

  1. Create and configure the Policy Object that defines the appropriate policy.
  2. Apply the Policy Object to a domain, OU, or Managed Unit.

As a result, after deprovisioning a group in the container you selected in Step 2, Active Roles retains the deprovisioned group object for 90 days and then it deletes that object.

Step 1: Creating and configuring the Policy Object

Step 1: Creating and configuring the Policy Object

You can create and configure the Policy Object you need by using the New Deprovisioning Policy Object wizard. For information about the wizard, see Creating a Policy Object in the Policy Object management tasks section earlier in this chapter.

To configure the policy, click Group Object Permanent Deletion on the Select Policy Type page of the wizard. Then, click Next.

On the Deletion Options page, click Delete the object after retention period. Then, in the box beneath that option, type 90.

When you are done, click Next and follow the instructions in the wizard to create the Policy Object.

Step 2: Applying the Policy Object

Step 2: Applying the Policy Object

You can apply the Policy Object by using the Enforce Policy page in the New Deprovisioning 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.
