Implement ACEs for the Reseller Organization

The access control entries (ACEs) on each reseller organization control the type of access that each group is granted to the reseller organization. ACEs on reseller groups allow resellers to access their parent object (that is, the hosting organization) but access is restricted to their particular reseller organization. The permissions specified by the ACE restrict user accounts in each reseller group from viewing organizational units (OUs) other than those for their organization. The Remove Authenticated Users ACE is set on each reseller OU to prevent all users from reading the contents of the reseller OU, unless they are explicitly granted this right. This prevents a reseller's customers from viewing OUs other than their own.

ACEs for the AllUsers@reseller Group

The ACEs on the AllUsers@reseller group grant List Object permissions for the reseller OU.

The following table describes an ACE on the AllUsers@reseller group that restricts members of the AllUsers@reseller group from listing the contents of the reseller organization. This prevents user accounts within a particular customer organization from viewing other customer OUs within the reseller organization.
