Performing role assignment on multiple computers

To simplify the process of assigning Active Directory users or groups to a role, you can perform a bulk role assignment. With a bulk role assignment, you can assign a role to multiple Active Directory users and groups on multiple computers at the same time. For example, if you have two groups of Oracle administrators and three computers where the members of those groups need access to their OracleAdmin role, you can select those two groups and those three computers to be assigned the OracleAdmin role in the same process. You can also specify optional start and end times for the role assignment and have those settings apply for all of the users, groups, and computers you have selected for bulk assignment.

To assign a role to multiple users and groups on multiple computers

  1. Open Access Manager.
  2. Expand Zones and the individual parent or child zones required to select the zone name where you want to make a bulk role assignment.
  3. Right-click, then select Assign Roles to Computers.
  4. Type the user and group names you want to be included in the role assignment, then click OK.

    You can specify multiple names separated by a semi-colon (;). You can also search for user and group names by typing part of the name and clicking Check Names or by clicking Advanced and entering search criteria. If multiple users or groups match the search criteria, select the appropriate users and groups, then click OK.

  5. Type the computer names you want to be included in the role assignment, then click OK.

    You can specify multiple names separated by a semi-colon (;). You can also search for the computer names by typing part of the name and clicking Check Names or by clicking Advanced and entering search criteria. If multiple computers match the search criteria, select the appropriate computers, then click OK.

  6. Select a role for the list of roles available, then click OK.
  7. Review the role assignment start and end time and the user and group accounts that are being assigned the role, then click OK.

    You can make changes to the start and end times if you want those changes applied for all of the users, groups, and computers that are part of this bulk role assignment.

After you click OK, the selected users and groups are then automatically assigned the selected role on the selected computers.
