Security Filters perform the following two functions:

  • Filter the scope of a GPO
  • Delegate administration of a Group Policy

To filter the scope of a GPO, please perform the following steps:

  1. Select a GPO in the GP Repository.
  2. Right-click the GPO and select Properties.
  3. Select the Security tab. There are six access permissions that can be configured:
    • Full Control
    • Read
    • Write
    • Create All Child Objects
    • Delete All Child Objects
    • Apply

Allow explicitly permits the user or group to perform the function.

Deny explicitly prevents users or groups from performing said function.

NOTE: No permission (neither Allow nor Deny are checked) is an implicit Allow or Deny.

To delegate the administration of a GPO perform the following steps:

  1. Select a GPO node, right-click on it and select Adjust Filters.
  2. Then choose from the list of users/computers and groups from any OU or container in the domain. There will be three filters that you can modify:
    • View GPO settings
    • Receive GPO settings
    • Edit GPO settings
