Disable Operations on AD Objects


The operations available in Adaxes Web Interface depend on the user's permissions that are granted through Security Roles. If a user doesn't have the rights to perform an operation, it will not be available and even visible to the user in the Web Interface.

However, sometimes you may need to explicitly disable certain operations. For example, when a user selects multiple Active Directory objects, the Web Interface doesn't check permissions for each of the selected objects and displays all available operations. Also, you may want to disable some operations to simplify the user interface and get rid of the features users don't need.

  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 customize.

  3. In the left navigation menu, click Management.

  4. To completely disable an operation, uncheck it in the Operations section.

    You can configure Custom Commands in the same way you configure other operations.
  5. You can disable an operation only for specific Web Interface components. For example, you can disallow the Delete operation on search results.

    • Select the Delete operation.

    • Under the Visibility tab, locate the Grids list.

    • Uncheck the checkbox in the Visible column for the Search component.

      If you want an operation to be hidden by default under the Other button, check the checkbox in the Under the Other menu column.

  6. Also, you can disable specific operations in the views used to display Active Directory objects.

    • In the Operations section, select the operation you want to hide.

    • Under the Visibility tab, locate the Views list.

    • Uncheck the checkbox in the Visible column for the object type you need.

      If you want an operation to be hidden by default under the Other button, check the checkbox in the Under the Other menu column.

  7. 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.
