Authorization Manager

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

Authorization Manager provides a flexible framework for integrating role-based access control into applications. It enables administrators who use those applications to provide access through assigned user roles that relate to job functions.

Authorization Manager applications store authorization policy in the form of authorization stores that are stored in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS), XML files, or Microsoft SQL Server databases. These polices are then applied at run time.
