Group Family policy options

Group Family policy options determine the Group Family processing behavior. For instance, there is a policy option that determines whether controlled groups can have members from external domains.

You can view or change Group Family policy options in the Active Roles console as follows:

  1. In the console tree, select Configuration | Policies | Administration | Builtin.
  2. In the details pane, double-click Built-in Policy - Group Family.
  3. In the Built-in Policy - Group Family Properties dialog box, click the Policies tab, select the policy, and click View/Edit.
  4. In the Policy Properties dialog box that appears, click the Policy Settings tab.

The Policy Settings tab includes the following options:

  • Enable cross-domain membership

    Select this option if you want Group Family to support the grouping of objects from external domains. When selected, this option allows each Group Family instance to have managed object containers from any domains that are registered with Active Roles. If this option is not selected, the managed object containers must be from the domain of the Group Family configuration storage group.

    Selecting this option should be considered a long-term commitment to scenarios where objects managed by Group Family may reside in domains other than the domain of the Group Family configuration storage group—external domains. Once you have enabled cross-domain membership, you can configure Group Family instances to look for managed objects in any domains registered with Active Roles. However, if you later decide to un-select this policy options, the Group Family instances that were configured to look for managed objects in external domains will cease to function. You will have to inspect and, if needed, reconfigure your existing Group Family instances to limit scope of managed objects to the domain of the Group Family configuration storage group.

  • Enable support for non-stored virtual attributes

    When selected, this option makes it possible for Group Family to perform grouping based on custom non-stored virtual attributes-the attributes that have their value calculated by a certain policy rather than stored in the Active Roles database. This option can have a negative effect on Group Family performance, so select it only if you have any of the Group Family group-by properties implemented as a custom non-stored virtual attribute.

    This option is normally not selected for performance reasons, which causes Group Family not to create controlled groups that use a custom non-stored virtual attribute as a group-by property. You need to select this option if you want Group Family to create controlled groups by grouping objects based on custom non-stored virtual attributes.

Creating a Group Family

Creation of a Group Family is a two-step process that includes:

  1. Creating the Group Family configuration
  2. Running the Group Family to initially create or capture groups

The Active Roles console provides the New Group Family wizard for creating the Group Family configuration. The wizard creates a group, referred to as configuration storage group, and populates that group with the configuration data you specify.

Note that you can create any number of Group Families, with each Group Family intended to control a certain collection of groups. When linking a group to a grouping, the Group Family engine ensures the group is under the control of only the Group Family that created the link, thereby avoiding conflicts.

NOTE: Groups created through Group Family does not support group name with special characters, such as, /\[]:;|=*?<>".

Start the New Group Family wizard

You can start the New Group Family wizard in the Active Roles console by using the New | Group Family command on the organizational unit in which you want to place the configuration storage group.

To start the New Group Family wizard

  • Right-click the organizational unit to hold the Group Family configuration storage group, and select New | Group Family.

Name the Group Family

The first page following the Welcome page is used to provide a name for the new Group Family. The name is assigned to the group that stores the Group Family configuration data (configuration storage group).

You can also use this page to adjust the type and scope of the configuration storage group. These are set to Security and Global by default, and normally need not be modified.
