When you select an item in the console tree, the details pane changes accordingly. To perform administrative tasks, click items in the details pane and use commands on the Action menu. The Action menu commands also appear on the shortcut menu that you can access by right-clicking items in the console tree or details pane.
By default, the objects listed in the details pane are sorted in ascending order by object name. You can change the sorting order by clicking a column heading. You can add and remove columns in the details pane using the Choose Columns command on the View menu.
In the Active Roles console you can apply filters to the details pane in order to search for directory objects. To configure a filter, select a domain and then click Filter Options on the View menu. It is also possible to find an object in the details pane by typing a few characters. This will select the first item in the sorted column that matches what you typed.
The advanced pane appears at the bottom of the details pane if you check Advanced Details Pane on the View menu. You can use the advanced pane to administer an object selected in the console tree or details pane: right-click an existing entry in the list to administer it, or right-click a blank area of the advanced pane to add a new entry.
The advanced pane is composed of a number of tabbed pages. The selected object determines which tabs are displayed. All possible tabs in the advanced pane and their descriptions are as follows:
- Active Roles Security Lists Active Roles Access Templates applied to the selected object.
- Links Lists the objects to which the selected Access Template is applied.
- Active Roles Policy Lists Active Roles Policy Objects applied to the selected object.
- Native Security Lists Active Directory permission entries specified for the selected object.
- Member Of Lists groups to which the selected object belongs.
- Members Lists members of the selected group.
NOTE: The console displays the Active Roles Security, Active Roles Policy, and Native Security tabs for a selected object only if your user account has the Read Control right to the selected object.
Depending on the tab you have selected in the advanced pane, the toolbar displays the following buttons to help you work with the entries on the tab.
