Sun Java System Communications Services 6 2005Q4 Delegated Administrator Guide

Types of Service Packages

A service package includes the following components:

Delegated Administrator automatically provides Access Manager service with every service definition. When you assign a service package to a user or group, Delegated Administrator takes the Access Manager object classes and attributes from the service definition and adds them to the LDAP entry.

Do not change or delete the Access Manager portion of any service package.

When you create a service package, you can configure its service bundle and LDAP object.

Service Bundles

Delegated Administrator provides two types of service: mail service and calendar service.

A service package bundles one or more services, together with a set of attributes associated with that service. Thus, an individual service package can contain the following combinations of services:

Note –

Only mail service has LDAP attributes in its Class-of-Service definition. Calendar service has no attributes associated with it.

Packages Defined for Particular LDAP Objects

A service package is defined either for users or for groups. You cannot assign the same service package to a user and a group.

Delegated Administrator provides service packages with the following service bundles and LDAP objects:

Note –

Only mail service can be assigned to groups. In this release of Delegated Administrator, a group cannot have calendar service.

About Groups

In Delegated Administrator, a group is an entry in the LDAP directory that comprises a list of users. Characteristics of the group are not passed on to the users who are members of the group. For example, when you assign a service package to a group, the service package attributes are not inherited by the users who are members of the group.

When a mail service package is assigned to a group, the group becomes a mailing list, which is used by Messaging Server.
