Is there a way to script changes to ActiveView rules? 

How do I change the domain name references in all ActiveViews without opening each one to edit it manually?

Can I make bulk or global changes to all ActiveView rules?

Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x

Directory and Resource Administrator 8.0


It may be possible to use a script to modify ActiveViews. However, there is no easy way to modify ActiveViews in bulk because the ActiveView data is stored in the registry in binary format:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mission Critical Software\OnePoint\Administration\Data\Modules\Security\ActiveView

This registry key contains folders for each ActiveView. Each ActiveView folder contains Deputies, Principals, and Rules.

Open the Rules folder to see each rule.  Most rules have a Buffer key with a binary value.

An Enhancement Request has been opened with Development to include this functionality in a future version of Directory and Resource Administrator.
