BHOLD Reporting Installation


Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager 2010

The BHOLD Reporting module gives you the ability to generate reports about roles and other authorization policies in BHOLD. These reports are often useful for auditing or for demonstrating compliance to regulatory requirements. Also, this module extends your ability to manage authorization within your organization by giving users the information they need to analyze the membership of their roles. The reports can have restricted views that ensure that the users who create reports are shown only the information they are allowed to see.
