Configuring Delegation for a Site or an Application in IIS 7

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

In IIS 7, you can configure default delegation settings and custom delegation settings at the site and application levels.

When you configure default delegation settings at a parent level, you affect all children of that parent. For example, when you delegate a feature at the Web server level, you affect all sites on the server. Similarly, when you delegate a feature in a site, you affect all applications in that site. IIS Manager users and Windows users can then configure delegated features in the sites and applications to which you have granted them permission.

When you configure custom delegation settings, you affect only a specific site or application. For example, you might delegate the Directory Browsing feature to all sites on your server, but do not want the Directory Browsing feature to be delegated to the Default Web Site. You can use the Feature Delegation page at the server level to delegate the Directory Browsing feature to all sites on the server. Then you can use the Custom Site Delegation page remove delegation of the Directory Browsing feature from the Default Web Site.

For information about the levels at which you can perform these procedures, and the modules, handlers, and permissions that are required for these procedures, see Delegation Feature Requirements (IIS 7).
