About this release

Follows is a description of Active Roles and specifics about this release.

Active Roles

Active Roles Server offers a practical approach to automated user provisioning and administration, for maximum security and efficiency. It provides total control of user provisioning and administration for Active Directory.

One Identity Authentication Services extends the capabilities of Unix, Linux and Mac systems to seamlessly and transparently join Active Directory and integrate Unix identities with Active Directory Windows accounts.

Through the Authentication Services ARS Integration Pack, ActiveRoles Server extends management control to Unix and Linux identities such as Unix-enabled users and groups. Query-based management views show all of the identities, business rules ensure and enforce appropriate administrative practices, permission templates make it easy to delegate identity management.
