3.0 Managing Objects

NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 includes NetIQ iManager 2.7, a Web-based network management application that lets you manage the objects in your eDirectory tree. To understand the features and benefits of NetIQ iManager, see the NetIQ iManager 2.7 Administration Guide.

Managing eDirectory objects involves creating, modifying, and manipulating objects. For example, you might need to create user accounts and administer user rights. Use NetIQ iManager to:

  • Perform administration basics, such as browsing, creating, editing, and organizing objects.

  • Create user accounts, including specifying a user's login name and supplying other information used by eDirectory

  • Administer rights (assign rights, grant equivalence, block inheritance, and view effective rights). See Administering Rights for more information.

  • Configure role-based administration (define administrator roles for specific administrative applications through the role-based services object).
