This reference topic for the IT professional provides an overview and links to information about the User Rights Assignment security policy settings user rights that are available in the Windows operating system.

User rights govern the methods by which a user can log on to a system. User rights are applied at the local computer level, and they allow users to perform tasks on a computer or in a domain. User rights include logon rights and permissions. Logon rights control who is authorized to log on to a computer and how they can log on. User rights permissions control access to computer and domain resources, and they can override permissions that have been set on specific objects. User rights are managed in Group Policy under the User Rights Assignment item.

Each user right has a constant name and a Group Policy name associated with it. The constant names are used when referring to the user right in log events. You can configure the user rights assignment settings in the following location within the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) under Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment, or on the local computer by using the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc).

For information about setting security policies, see How to Configure Security Policy Settings.

The following table links to each security policy setting and provides the constant name for each. Setting descriptions contain reference information, best practices for configuring the policy setting, default values, differences between operating system versions, and considerations for policy management and security.
