User Rights

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

This topic lists and explains the rights you can assign to users by using operations in Owsadm.exe and Owsrmadm.exe. Each user right is listed by the name that appears in HTML Administration pages. The name used to identify the right for the command-line tools is listed in a table, along with a list of which roles the user right is included in by default and any other rights that are dependent on the specified user right.

For more information about user right and roles, see Managing Roles and Managing Users. For more information about using the command-line tools, see Command-line Administration.
