Security synchronization

Permissions defined in an Access Template can be propagated to Active Directory, with all changes made to them in Active Roles being automatically synchronized to Active Directory.

By enabling synchronization from Active Roles security to Active Directory native security, Active Roles provides the facility to specify Active Directory security settings with Access Templates. Access Templates simplify and enhance the management of permissions in Active Directory, enable the logical grouping of permissions, and providing an efficient mechanism for setting and maintaining access control.

For each permission entry defined in Active Roles and configured with the Permissions Propagation option set, Active Roles generates native Active Directory permission entries based on the Active Roles permission entry.

The Permissions Propagation option (also referred to as Sync to Native Security or Sync to AD in the user interface) ensures that every time Active Roles permissions change, the associated native permission entries change accordingly.

Disabling the Permissions Propagation option on existing Active Roles permissions, or deleting Active Roles permissions with this option set, deletes all native permission entries specified through those Active Roles permissions.

If a propagated permission entry is deleted or modified in Active Directory, whether intentionally or by mistake, Active Roles restores that entry based on Access Template information, thus ensuring the correct permission settings in Active Directory. The “Sync of Permissions to Active Directory” scheduled task is used in Active Roles to create or update permission entries in Active Directory based on the Access Template links that have the Permissions Propagation option enabled.

Access Template management tasks

This section guides you through the Active Roles console to manage Access Templates. The following topics are covered:

Using predefined Access Templates

Active Roles offers an extensive suite of preconfigured Access Templates that represent typical administrative roles, enabling the correct level of administrative authority to be delegated quickly and consistently.

The predefined Access Templates are located in containers under Configuration/Access Templates in theActive Roles console. You can display a list of Access Templates in the details pane by expanding Configuration | Access Templates and then selecting one of these containers in the console tree:

  • Active Directory
  • Azure
  • AD LDS (ADAM)
  • Computer Resources
  • Configuration
  • Exchange
  • Starling
  • User Interfaces
  • User Self-management

Active Directory

You can use Access Templates from the Active Directory container to delegate Active Directory data management tasks and Active Directory service management tasks, such as:

  • User and group management
  • Management of computer, printer queue, or shared folder objects
  • Forest and domain configuration management

This container includes templates that allow for a wide range of administrative tasks and templates that limit access to selected properties of Active Directory objects.
