  3. Click the Definition tab, and then click Authorization Rule.

  4. In the Authorization Rule dialog box, in Script path, type the complete path to the authorization rule, including the file name extension.

  5. Under Script type, do one of the following:

    • If your script has a .vbs file name extension, click VBScript.

    • If your script has a .js file name extension, click JScript.


  • To open Authorization Manager, click Start, click Run, and then type: azman.msc

  • To perform this procedure, you need a role definition or a task definition. For more information about creating a role assignment, see Related Topics.
