Role-Based ServicesNovell iManager gives administrators the ability to assign specific responsibilities to users and to present the user with only the tools (and their accompanying rights) necessary to perform those sets of responsibilities. This functionality is called Role-Based Services (RBS). Role-Based Services allows administrators to focus the user on a specified set of functions, called tasks, and objects as determined by the grouping of tasks called roles. What users see when they access iManager is based on their role assignments in eDirectory. Only the tasks assigned to that user are displayed. The user does not need to browse the tree to find an object to administer; the iManager plug-in for that task presents the necessary tools and interface to perform the task.
