Control User Access to Web Interface

Access to Active Directory in Adaxes is controlled by Security Roles. Adaxes Web Interface changes dynamically based on the permissions of the currently logged on user. For example, if a user doesn't have the permission to perform an operation, the operation will not be available and even visible for them. If a user isn't allowed to view an Active Directory object, the object will never be displayed in the Web Interface.

For details on how to disallow users to view certain objects in Active Directory, see
Hide Active Directory Objects from Users.

In addition to controlling access with the help of Security Roles, you can completely disallow specific users or groups to use a Web Interface. For example, you may not want members of the Administrators group to use a Web Interface hosted in the DMZ.

  1. Open Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    • On a computer, where Web Interface Configurator is installed, open the Start menu.
    • On the Start menu, select Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    The permissions to configure the Web Interface are delegated via Security Roles. By default, only Service Administrators have the appropriate rights. To enable other users to configure the Web Interface, grant them the corresponding permissions.

    • In Adaxes Administration Console, right-click your Adaxes service, point to New and click Security Role.
    • Enter a name for the new Security Role and click Next.
    • On the Permissions page, click the arrow inside the Add button and select Configure Web Interface.
    • Click Next and follow the steps in the wizard.
  2. In the top left corner, select the Web Interface you want to configure.

  3. In the left navigation menu, click Access Control.

  4. In the User Access section, specify users and security groups to which you want to allow or deny access.

    The Deny access for all users option can be useful if you have a Web Interface that is used for self-service password reset only. If selected, no one will be allowed to sign in to the Web Interface, and at the same time the password self-service feature will be available through it.
  5. Save the changes.

    The settings in a section can be applied to other Web Interfaces. For this purpose, in the top right corner of the section, click the down arrow button and choose Apply to other Web Interfaces.
