The Desktop Service consists of global and dynamic attributes. The values applied to the global attributes are applied across the Sun Java System Sun Java System Access Manager configuration and are inherited by every configured organization. They cannot be applied directly to roles or organizations as the goal of global attributes is to customize the Sun Java System Access Manager application. Values applied to the dynamic attributes are assigned to a role or organization. When the role is assigned to a user or a user is created in an organization, the dynamic attribute then becomes a characteristic of the user.
