Nested role support

May 13, 2010 at 9:05 PM

Hi Maik,

Do you have any plans to add nested role support. As I could do with this feature in my environment to help me define base roles for both desktop/laptops then additional roles on top of that for a laptop + department etc. Does MDT support merging roles together?

That would be fantastic...MDT does lack in this feature!

I was starting a powershell script to do that...but MDTWeb would be the best choice...

I actually wanted to implement nested Role support already in the last version but due to time restrictions wasn't able to do so. It's definetly on my ToDo list for the next release. But the implementation needs to be stable (avoiding infinite loops, etc) so I still haven't decided on the best implementation yet. Would be interested to hear your comments, requirements, etc.

Regards

Maik

Maik,
 
I am also a dotnet developer (and I have one more person here to work together), so I will take a look into the code and check how are the things going currently and try to suggest the new feature.
 
At a glance, I would say that the main goal of my point of view would be "a user can select one role and all roles 'attached' to it will be applied".
 
The biggest problem is the recursive logic (of misconfigured rules).
 
But i don't see that as a problem.
 
Do you want me to help you on this issue?

Maik,
 
What do you think to have my help to implement this.
 
Would you like it?
 
I am willing to participate and help to improve this software and NestedRoles is one of the features that "I can't live without".
 
Regards
