When you select an object from the list, information about that object is displayed in the Summary pane under the list of objects. The information includes some commonly used properties of the object, and depends upon the object type. For example, user properties provide more detailed information about a user account, such as the logon name, e-mail address, description, job title, department, expiration date, and the date and time that the account was last changed. If you don’t see the Summary pane, click in the area beneath the list of objects.
Property pages are used in the Web Interface to modify directory objects. The following figure gives an example of the property page that appears when you select a user account from the list of objects and click General Properties in the Command pane.
Figure 2: Object Property page
The property page consists of several tabs. Each tab provides a number of data entries allowing you to view or change certain properties of the directory object. Click a tab to access the data entries on that tab. To apply the changes you have made in the data entries, click the Save button.
Active Roles Admin can use the Customize link in the upper right corner of the page to add or remove data entries or entire tabs from the property page. The Customize link is not displayed unless you are logged on as a member of the Active Roles Admin account, which specified in the configuration settings of the Active Roles Administration Service.
The list of objects in the Web Interface has a number of features that help you locate the objects you target. Thus, you can sort objects in a list and apply a filter to a list. You can also add or remove list columns.
To sort the list of objects by name
You can also sort the list by other columns. Click a column heading to change the sort order. For instructions on how to add or remove columns, see Adding or removing columns from the list of objects later in this document.
To filter the list of objects
After you have applied a filter, the list includes only the objects that match the filter. For example, you can type a few characters in the Filter field on the Toolbar and then press Enter to view only the objects whose name starts with the characters you typed.
