Managing Enterprise Scopes

An Enterprise Scope is grouping of objects, similar to a folder that contains multiple files, on which you can manipulate permissions. Unlike Favorites, where you can list single paths, Enterprise Scopes can contain multiple paths.

Use Enterprise Scopes to organize objects into logical groups so that you can more easily manage the permissions associated with these objects. For example, you could target multiple drives on one or many servers located across your network. You could group together all home directories, even if they span several drives on several servers. You also could use Enterprise Scopes for quick access of frequently-used paths.

Enterprise Scopes are unique to each module, but you can view all the Enterprise Scopes by clicking All Management Targets. All the Enterprise Scopes are listed and identified with the module in which they were created.

IMPORTANT: You must select View | Enterprise Scope Tree Node to display Enterprise Scopes in the Navigation pane.

There are two ways to create an Enterprise Scope. As you are navigating through the Navigation and Object panes, you can select an object and add it to an Enterprise Scope. You also can create Enterprise Scopes through the Manage Enterprise Scopes feature, which is an efficient method for creating multiple scopes in an organized manner.
