Active Directory Groups play a crucial role in the Identity and Access Management (IAM) strategy of any Windows-based organization, as they are used to regulate user access to several resources including email communication groups. The cycle of adding and removing users to and from groups forms an integral part of an IT administrator’s job. However, the sheer number of groups and the frequency in which users' roles change in an organization makes it a very difficult task. This can lead to some major problems like:
ADSelfService Plus supports a Self-Service Active Directory Group Subscription system through which users can opt-in or opt-out of selected Distribution Groups on their own, provided that they satisfy the group subscription policies prescribed by IT administrators.
From a centralized console of ADSelfService Plus, administrators can define group subscription policies that determine which users can subscribe to which groups. Essentially, these policies act as a security barrier that prevent unauthorized subscriptions to groups. Users can also be allowed, by the administrator, to view the members of the groups that are open to them for subscription.
Quite often users find themselves mailing or calling the helpdesk requesting access to a particular email group. With a little bit of homework or based on departmental roles, administrators can easily identify the email groups that a user would need in her/his line of duty. These groups can be made available to end-users in a group subscription policy.
