RightsTemplate object

The RightsTemplate object can be used to manage a rights policy template. Templates identify rights and conditions that can be applied to AD RMS–protected content, and they identify the users who can access the content. Different templates typically contain a different mix of rights or a different set of conditions. The following template elements can be defined by using the AD RMS Scripting API:

  • A collection of template names and descriptions with a different name-description pair for each locale ID (LCID) entered.
  • Users and groups that can be granted content licenses.
  • The rights granted to each user or user group.
  • The content expiration policy.
  • A set of extended policies.
  • A collection of application-specific name-value pairs.
  • The revocation policy for the template.
  • A revocation list.
  • A revocation list refresh interval.
  • A revocation list public key file.

Individual RightsTemplate objects can be retrieved from the RightsTemplateCollection object that is initialized from the existing templates on the server when the ConfigurationManager object is initialized. You can create a new template by using the CreateObject() function or the Copy method on the RightsTemplateCollection object.
