The following rights are needed to set up a user (or group or organizational role) to administer other user's list of NAL Applications and Launcher Configuration settings. Also included are the rights needed to administer the NetWare Registry Editor page of a user.

Any object can be a trustee of any other object. In this example, an Organization Role object is made a trustee of the User object that is to be administered. This concept can be applied to Groups of users and Containers of users as well. Also, instead of an Organization Role object, a User object or a Group object could have been used

Right to Configure the Launcher Configuration Page of Users

Make the Organizational Role object a trustee of User and assign the following Property rights:

  • Read

  • Write

  • Inheritable for the App:Launcher Config property

Rights to Add and Delete Applications on the Applications Page of User

Make the Organizational Role object a trustee of User (this was done in item 1) and assign the following Property rights:

  • Read

  • Write

  • Inheritable for the App:Associations property

Then, for each application object that the Organizational Role can add or delete, make the Organizational Role object a trustee of the application object, and assign the following Property right:

  • Supervisor for All Properties

This task can be simplified by creating a container for Application objects only. Then make the trustee assignment at the Container level instead of at the Application object level. The right assignment will apply to all objects in the container.

The Organizational Role object will also need Access Control file system rights to the directories where the Application object's application files are stored so that the dynamic file rights can be assigned when applications are associated with users.

Rights to Configure the NetWare Registry Editor Page of User

Make the Organizational Role object a trustee of User (this was done in item 1) and assign the following Property rights:

  • Read and Write for the NRD:Registry Data property

  • Read, Write for the NRD:Registry Index property
