Additional considerations

  • To delegate permissions to perform Group Policy Modeling analyses for objects in a domain or organizational unit, you must have Modify Permissions on that domain or organizational unit. By default, only domain administrators and enterprise administrators have this permission.

  • You cannot delegate permission to perform Group Policy Modeling analyses for sites.

  • You can also use the Delegation tab to change or remove permissions for a group or user for Group Policy Modeling data.
