Microsoft® Provisioning Framework (MPF) has five groups: MPFAdmins, MPFAuditors, MPFServiceAccts, MPFClientAccts, and MPFTrustedUsers. For domain deployments, these accounts are installed in Microsoft® Active Directory®; for local installations, they are installed in Microsoft® Windows® as workgroup accounts.

|MPFTrustedUsers||Grants privileges to submit trusted requests, or more precisely, to call the SubmitTrustedRequest methods of the IProvEngine and IProvQueue interfaces.|
