Delegated Administration Console uses XML technology to present information and configuration options selectively to users based on their roles. You can easily modify the information presented to users based on the user interface (UI) framework. You can do this in most cases simply by modifying XML code. In order to implement advanced functionality within the UI framework, however, some Active Server Pages (ASP) coding is required.
You can use the UI framework to do the following:
You do this by modifying its associated XML document. You can add or remove certain information, such as a user's mobile phone number for example, from a given Delegated Administration Console page by modifying the associated XML document for that page. This feature reduces the amount of code you must manage.
Within the XML document associated with a given Delegated Administration Console page, you can specify an RPN for the page as a whole and for each tab on the page. Then, only users who have roles with an equal or greater RPN are able to view the information. For more information about RPNs, see Understanding roles and privileges.
You can modify the Delegated Administration Console user interface to manage the requirements of multiple service providers and applications. Rather than designing a custom UI, you can use the UI framework to add features or applications to Delegated Administration Console by creating custom Web pages with associated XML documents. You can then use Delegated Administration Console as a management tool for your applications, allowing users to view and manage their own information. You can also use Delegated Administration Console to package and submit requests from applications to Microsoft Provisioning Framework (MPF).
This provides greater control when it is needed.
