PowerGUI in multitenant environments

Here’s another cool example of how PowerGUI admin console can be customized to solve the tasks which no other tool can.

Chris is building tools for administrators in multi-tenant Active Directory environment. That means that one Active Directory is shared by multiple companies/departments/groups.

With native admin tools it is very hard to limit the views to just the subset a particular administrator needs – because they are normally limited to more or less the all or nothing approach. With PowerGUI things are much easier because you can easily change anything within the console.

With just one line changed Chris made PowerGUI’s AD PowerPack limit the view to a domain subtree specific to the administrator. And you can obviously easily slice the views in a different way – e.g. limit them by department, office, title, and so on.

Pretty powerful in modern environments and multi-tenant or delegated administration models! Check out our discussion thread here.
