Timebox value format

A Centrify role specifies a collection of rights. A role object contains a field, timebox, that defines what hours in a week a role is either enabled or disabled. Setting the timebox field in a role object defines when a role’s rights are in effect.

You can read a role’s timebox field using the ADEdit command get_role_field and set the timebox value using set_role_field. You can modify an existing timebox value one hour at a time using the ADEdit library command modify_timebox.

To interpret a timebox value, or to set it directly, you must know the timebox value format which is, unfortunately, not simple as defined by Active Directory. This appendix explains the format.
