Performing AGPM Administrator Tasks
In Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM), an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) configures domain-wide options and delegates permissions to Approvers, Editors, Reviewers, and other AGPM Administrators. By default, an AGPM Administrator is an individual with Full Control—all AGPM permissions—and who therefore can perform tasks associated with any role.
In an environment in which multiple people develop Group Policy Objects (GPOs), you can choose whether all AGPM users perform the same tasks and have the same level of access or whether AGPM Administrators delegate permissions to Editors who make changes to GPOs and to Approvers who deploy GPOs to the production environment. AGPM Administrators can configure permissions to meet the needs of your organization.
Configuring Advanced Group Policy Management: Configure the AGPM Server Connection and e-mail notification, delegate access to GPOs in the production environment, and configure logging and tracing for troubleshooting.
Managing the Archive: Delegate access to GPOs in the archive and limit the number of versions of each GPO stored.
Managing the AGPM Service: Stop and start the AGPM Service or change the archive path, the AGPM Service Account, or the port on which the AGPM Service listens.
Move the AGPM Server and the Archive: Move the AGPM Service, the archive, or both to a different server.
Also, because the AGPM Administrator role includes the permissions for all other roles, an AGPM Administrator can perform the tasks normally associated with any other role.
Performing Approver Tasks, such as creating, deploying, or deleting GPOs
Performing Editor Tasks, such as editing, renaming, labeling, or importing GPOs, creating templates, or setting a default template
Performing Reviewer Tasks, such as reviewing settings and comparing GPOs
By default, the AGPM Administrator role has Full Control—all AGPM permissions:
The Modify Options and Modify Security permissions are unique to the role of AGPM Administrator.
