Using Imanager's Roles and Tasks#

Novell provides a highly scalable and redundent management utility that can be customized to nearly every need for managing values within EDirectory. >>>This needs to be expanded upon. Some quick notes.
  • Adding a user to a group is automated so that all attributes are populated correctly.
  • Modifications to attributes, user entries, and groups can be restricted to Members of a role by Imanager
  • When managing via Imanager custom pages maybe created with little programing ability to limit the "view" to the administrator.

Backlinks do exist to at least the same extent as they would with groups.

rbsRole2 (cn=eGuide Org Chart Management, cn=Role Based Service 2, dc=[Directory-Info.com], dc=net)	<=>	rbsScope2
  		 	      equivalentToMe (uid=B003281,ou=People,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net)	<=>	securityEquals (cn=[Directory-Info.com],cn=eGuide Org Chart Management,cn=Role Based Service 2,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net)
                   		rbsMember (uid=B003281,ou=People,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net#0#0)	<=>	rbsAssignedRoles2 (cn=eGuide Org Chart Management,cn=Role Based Service 2,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net#0#0)
In addtion, if a scope is specified lower than the tree, a subordinate entry is created for the entry as shown below:
rbsScope2 (cn=[Directory-Info.com], cn=eGuide Org Chart Management, cn=Role Based Service 2, dc=[Directory-Info.com], dc=net	<=>  USER
					equivalentToMe: uid=B003281,ou=People,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net	<=> securityEquals (cn=[Directory-Info.com],cn=eGuide Org Chart Management,cn=Role Based Service 2,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net)
						member: uid=B003281,ou=People,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net	<=> GroupMembership (cn=[Directory-Info.com],cn=eGuide Org Chart Management,cn=Role Based Service 2,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net)
Finally, special acls are applied to the "scope'd Object"
ACL: 1073741856#subtree#cn=[Directory-Info.com],cn=eGuide Org Chart Management,cn=Role Based Service 2,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net#isManager
ACL: 1073741856#subtree#cn=[Directory-Info.com],cn=eGuide Org Chart Management,cn=Role Based Service 2,dc=[Directory-Info.com],dc=net#manager
