Does anyone know or has any tool to meet the following needs :

1. Add / modify / remove security previleges (including acls, attributes, roles etc) for users and/or groups in the DB ACL.
2. Add / remove usernames &/or groups to another groups in GNAB.
3. Add / remove usernames &/or groups in GNAB.

Additionally, i would want to keep (or design later) a log of every above changes made to any dbs.
Any suggestions.. ?
I briefly looked into lotus sandbox but couldnot find any specific one.
Does anyone know or used anything that he/she can recommend ?

Thanks in advance. I will reward more points if required.

OpenNTF has a tool called aclhelp which allows you to use the server console to adjust ACLs, including ACLs that have "consistent ACL" froced on.  I have just finished building an admin UI for it, and I can see how we might add in features for "mass changes" using it.

Power Tools has some stuff for managing user names and groups.  So does Directory Attender, though that's a fairly high-end tool.

There's no real way to track all changes in a DB.  I suppose you could write a server hook that would log before/after images of everything.

No suggestions for log, until you are willing to change the database design. If you are willing to do that, it might be attainable.

As far as modifying the ACL of a DB is concerned, check out this class http://www13.brinkster.com/ranjeetrain/source/gware/clsaclmanager.asp

I have also developed a module with the class which does less or more the same you are trying. I have not had time to 'eady it to be posted on web'. Check out the code and let me know if it looks good to you. I will be happy to share with you the module I developed.

Ranjeet, everything looks great in your code except you may want to add some more functionality to modify the Access like: Create docment, delete doc, create personal agent etc. Modify the Adminp server etc.

I would appreciate if you could share the code with me. thanks
