Customizable Web Interface

The Active Roles Web Interface is a customizable Web-based application that facilitates administration, while taking full advantage of Active Roles’ security, workflow integration, and reporting benefits. To help distribute administrative tasks, the Web Interface allows you to configure multiple Web sites with individual sets of user interface elements. Each Web site can be customized to meet specific business and organizational needs.

Key features

Key features of the Web Interface include the following.

Role-based suite of interfaces

Customized interfaces (Web Interface sites) can be installed and configured for administrators, help desk operators, and end users. Administrators use an interface that supports a wide range of tasks, whereas help desk operators use a tailored, dedicated interface to expedite the resolution of trouble tickets. Network end users have access to an interface for self-administration. Multiple interfaces with different configurations can be deployed so that there is no need to re-configure the Web Interface for particular roles.

Dynamic configuration based on roles

The Web Interface dynamically adapts to the specific roles assigned to the users. A user can see only the commands, directory objects, and object properties to which the user’s role provides administrative access. Objects and commands beyond the scope of the user are removed from the Web Interface, streamlining the execution of administrative tasks.

Point-and-click customization

It is straightforward to configure the user interface. Administrators can set up a suitable set of user interface elements without writing a single line of code. Administrators can add and remove commands or entire menus, assign tasks and forms to commands, modify forms used to perform tasks, and create new commands, tasks, and forms. All configuration settings are saved in a persistent storage so that the Web Interface users are always presented with the properly configured interfaces that suite their roles.

Instant application of administrative policies

User input is efficiently supplemented and restricted based on administrative policies defined in Active Roles. The Web Interface displays property values generated in accordance with the policies, and prohibits the input of data that violates them. User input is checked against the policies before committing the operation request, and if a violation is detected, the user can immediately correct the input.

Fully-featured management solution

The Web Interface supports all administrative tasks on Active Directory objects such as users, groups, and computers, and on computer resources such as services, printers, network file shares, and local users and groups. With its advanced customization capabilities, the Web Interface serves as a complete administrative tool, providing suitable interfaces for any administrative role.

User Profile Editor

Provided they have the necessary Active Roles permissions, end users can view or change their personal data. Due to the reliable enforcement of business rules based directory entry, the Web Interface makes these tasks safe and secure. With User Profile Editor, Active Roles enables IT to manage, but not necessarily participate, in these time-consuming tasks, resulting in decreased help desk calls and IS administration time.

Support for multiple languages

The Web Interface allows users to select their preferred language. Changing the language affects all menus, commands, and forms associated with the Web Interface, as well as tool tips and help.
