Recast Scopes

A Recast Scope can be used to limit permissions to a subset of devices or users. 

Common Uses

  • Limit a user's ability to run Recast actions to a device collection or an Active Directory OU
  • Limit a route to objects within the scope, such as a Recast Proxy or Fast Channel

Beginning with Recast Software Version 5.0, scopes are created automatically in the background when a route is created or when a user is assigned a role and associated permissions that only allow them to perform tasks within a limited scope, which may include certain devices, users, AD OUs, or AD groups. 

The read-only Recast Scopes page displays scopes that have been created in your environment, and indicates whether the scope came from actions taken on the Routes page or the Permissions page.
