Active Directory

One Identity Active Roles

Active Roles delivers automated user account and group management that overcomes the shortcomings of native Microsoft Active Directory and Azure Active Directory tools. These enhanced identity-management capabilities enable you to do your job more efficiently, more accurately, and with less manual intervention. Active Roles is designed with a modular architecture, so your organization can easily meet your business requirements today and in the future. With Active Roles, you can automate tedious and error-prone administrative tasks and solve security issues by protecting and controlling all-important administrative access.

Hybrid AD ready

 Active Roles is optimized to serve the needs of both on-prem AD and Azure AD in a hybrid deployment. It offers a single console, unified workflows and a consistent administrative experience across your entire hybrid environment. It eliminates the cumbersome, error-prone, and unnecessary challenges that come with using separate native tools and manual processes.

Secure access

Active Roles provides comprehensive privileged account management for Active Directory and Azure Active Directory, enabling you to control access through delegation using a least-privilege model. Based on defined administrative policies and associated permissions, it generates and strictly enforces access rules, eliminating the errors and inconsistencies common with native approaches to hybrid AD management. Plus, robust and personalized approval procedures establish an IT process and oversight consistent with business requirements, with responsibility chains that complement the automated management of directory data.

Automate account administration

Active Roles automates a wide variety of tasks, including:

Creating user accounts and groups in AD and AAD
Extending AD/AAD-based account administrative actions to non-Windows
systems and SaaS applications
Creating mailboxes in Exchange and Exchange Online
Populating groups across AD and AAD
Assigning resource in Windows

It also automates the process of reassigning and removing user access rights in AD, AAD and AD-joined systems (including user and group de-provisioning) to ensure an efficient and secure administrative process over the user and group lifecycles. When a user’s access needs to be changed or removed, updates are made automatically across all relevant systems and applications in the hybrid AD/AAD environment, as well as AD-joined systems, including UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X rich (replace ‘as well as’ with ‘and’) and a growing collection of popular SaaS applications via the One Identity Starling Connect solution.

Day to day directory management

With Active Roles, you can easily manage all of the following for both the on-premise and Azure AD environments:

Exchange recipients, including mailbox/OCS assignment, creation, movement, deletion, permissions and distribution list management
Groups
Computers, including shares, printers, local users and groups
Active Directory and Azure Active Directory

Active Roles includes intuitive interfaces to optimize day-to- day administration and help-desk operations of the hybrid AD/AAD environment via both an MMC snap-in and a web interface.
