The following section contains a description of the class and instance rights available in the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 console.

Classes

 

Right Applies to Grants the ability to

Administer

All secured object classes, applicable updates summary instances

Assign or remove any user security rights for a class of objects or for individual object types in that class to yourself or to any other user.

You must explicitly grant other rights appropriate to the object type. Granting the Administer right to a user does not automatically give the user Create, Modify, or Delete rights for that object type.

Advertise

Collection object classes and instances

Advertise to a collection. Subcollections to the collection are also advertised to, even if the administrator does not have the Advertise right on the subcollections.

This right does not grant the ability to create advertisements — that requires Create right on the advertisement object type.

All secured object classes, applicable updates summary instances

Create an instance of an object type.

Create task sequence media

Task sequence package class

Create stand-alone and capture CD task sequence media.

Delegate

All classes except Status, applicable updates summary instances

Grant rights for any instances created by the user. The only rights that can be granted are rights the user has directly (not through group membership or at the class level).

Delete

All secured object classes and instances (except status message instances)

Delete an instance of an object type. (Deleting an advertisement requires Advertise rights on the collection receiving the advertisement and Read rights on the package containing the advertised program, in addition to Delete rights on the advertisement.)
