Is an Active Directory delegation management tool. It allows you to make a detailed inventory of delegations set up so far in a forest, along with their potential issues:

  • Objects owned by users
  • Objects with ACEs for users
  • Non canonical ACL
  • Disabled ACL inheritance
  • Default ACL modified in schema
  • Deleted delegation trustees

It also allows you to document your delegation model in JSON files, to obtain a more readable view:

You can also use the tool from a terminal by passing any option to it (if you don’t want to pass any particular option, just use --text):

If you want to export results, you can choose a CSV output using --csv my.csv This is also suitable if you are interested in differences introduced since a previous dump (e.g. in PowerShell, diff (cat export_new.csv) (cat export_old.csv) )

Results should be concise in forests without previous work in delegation management. If results are too verbose to be used, open an issue describing the type of results obscuring interesting ones, ideally with CSV exports or screenshots.

You can start using this inventory right away, in two ways:

  1. look for highly privileged resources which have no reason to have any delegation set up on them, since they are only supposed to be managed by forest-wide administrators

you can also start the other way around, and look for trustees which have no reason to have any right delegated to them (e.g. day-to-day end user accounts)
