Performing Approver Tasks
Updated: March 9, 2009
An Approver is a person authorized by an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) to create, deploy, and delete Group Policy Objects (GPOs) and to approve or reject requests (typically from Editors) to create, deploy, or delete GPOs.
|Make sure that you are connecting to the central archive for GPOs. For more information, see Configure an AGPM Server Connection.|
Approve or Reject a Pending Action
Creating, Controlling, or Importing a GPO
Check In a GPO
Deploy a GPO
Roll Back to a Previous Version of a GPO
Deleting, Restoring, or Destroying a GPO
|Before approving a GPO, an Approver should review the policy settings that it contains. The Approver role includes the permissions for the Reviewer role, so that an Approver can review policy settings and compare GPOs. See Performing Reviewer Tasks for more information.|
By default, the following permissions are provided for the Approver role:
- List Contents
- Read Settings
- Create GPO
- Deploy GPO
- Delete GPO
Also, an Approver has full control over GPOs that he created or controlled.
