Active Roles Web Interface

The section provides instructions on how to integrate the Password Manager Self-Service site into Active Roles Web Interface. Integration allows an Active Roles user to access the functionality of Password Manager Self-Service site directly from Active Roles Web Interface. To implement the guidance in this section, you must have a working knowledge of Active Roles.

Active Roles Web Interface is a highly customizable, easy-to-use Web-based application that facilitates the data administration and provisioning in Active Directory. Via the Web Interface, an intranet user can connect to Active Roles using Microsoft Internet Explorer and perform day-to-day administrative tasks and view or modify directory data.

Basic Integration Requirements

You must have Password Manager and Active Roles Web Interface installed and functioning. The Password Manager site that you are going to integrate into Active Roles Web Interface must be accessible from Active Roles though HTTPS (or HTTP) connection.

Customizing Active Roles Home Page

The Home page of the Active Roles Web Interface includes a number of items that serve as entry points to individual sections of the Web Interface. Each item occupies a clickable area on the Home page, and includes the caption (name of the item), text describing the item and a picture providing a graphical illustration of the item. Clicking an item displays a page that is identified by a certain property of the item.

You can add, modify, re-arrange, and remove items on the Home page. A point-and-click interface helps you manage the items, providing flexible options to customize the Home page. The changes you make to the Home page have effect on every user of the Web Interface site. Thus, when you remove an item from the Home Page, the item is not displayed to any user of the Web Interface site.

By adding a home page item, you can customize the Web Interface to seamlessly integrate custom applications together with the Web Interface pages. This option is used to integrate the Password Manager application into the Web Interface.
