Performing Editor Tasks

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

In Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM), an Editor is a person authorized by an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) to change Group Policy Objects (GPOs) and create GPO templates. Additionally, an Editor can request that a GPO be created, deleted, or restored. An Approver must approve the request for it to be implemented. An Editor can export a GPO to a file so that it can be copied to a domain in another forest, and import a GPO that was copied from another domain.

Make sure that you are connecting to the central archive for GPOs. For more information, see Configure an AGPM Server Connection.

Because the Editor role includes the permissions for the Reviewer role, an Editor can also review settings and compare GPOs. See Performing Reviewer Tasks for more information.

Additional considerations

By default, the following permissions are provided for the Editor role:

  • List Contents

  • Read Settings

  • Edit Settings

  • Export GPO

  • Import GPO

  • Create Template
