Configure Default Delegation Settings for a Site or an Application (IIS 7)
Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista
You can delegate configuration of features in sites or applications when you want users to be able to configure features in the sites on your Web server or to configure features in the applications in a site. When you configure default delegation at a parent level, such as at the site level, you also affect all children in the parent.
For information about the levels at which you can perform this procedure, and the modules, handlers, and permissions that are required to perform this procedure, see Delegation Feature Requirements (IIS 7).
