Introduction

ManagementStudio offers blueprints to help a project admin organize and structure a group of related items. They are similar to folders in Windows, a Blueprint can contain UsersApplicationsDevices, Mailboxes, Bespoke and Deployment UnitsThis section describes how an Admin can limit a User's access to specific modules by blueprints in ManagementStudio. 


Note that the User must be in the standard Role Groups to define the level of access for the module (such as Read-only). The Blueprint Rule can then be used to limit the user to items in specific Blueprints and modules.
