  2. Right-click any one duty node, and then click Add-Ins > Security tools.

  3. At the last level of the shortcut menu, click either View related security objects or View related security roles.

  4. Examine the rows in the grid control on the form that is displayed.

The following table lists the menu options that are available for each type of AOT node.
