The list of group members displayed by the Active Roles console makes it possible to distinguish between regular group members and temporal group members. It is also possible to hide or display so-called pending members, the temporal members that are scheduled to be added to the group in the future but are not actual members of the group so far.
To view temporal members of a group
The list of group memberships for a particular object makes it possible to distinguish between the groups in which the object is a regular member and the groups in which the object is a temporal member. It is also possible to hide or display so-called pending group memberships, the groups to which the object is scheduled to be added in the future.
To view groups in which an object is a temporal member
The temporal membership settings on a group member include the start time and end time settings.
The start time setting specifies when the object is to be actually added to the group. This can be specific date and time or an indication that the object should be added to the group right away.
The end time setting specifies when the object is to be removed from the group. This can be specific date and time or an indication that the object should not be removed from the group.
You can view or modify both the start time and end time settings using the Active Roles console.
To view or modify the start or end time setting for a member of a group
The Temporal Membership Settings dialog box provides the following options:
Regular members have the Add to group and Remove from group options set to Already added and Never, respectively. You can set a particular date for any of these options in order to convert a regular member to a temporal member.
You can remove temporal group members in the same way as regular group members. Removing a temporal member of a group deletes the temporal membership settings for that object with respect to that group. As a result, the object will not be added to the group. If the object already belongs to the group at the time of removal, then it is removed from the group.
To remove a temporal member of a group
|NOTE: You can remove an object that is a temporal member of a group by managing the object rather than the group. Open the Properties dialog box for that object, and then, on the Member Of tab, select the group from the list and click Remove.|
