Instead of creating your own table of users, roles, and user roles, and then creating forms to manage those user – role combinations, consider using Active Directory groups.  Your sysad already has all of your users built into your domain, and it is a relatively easy task for them to create groups and assign people to them, so why duplication that effort.

All you have to do is add a few lines of code to your application to take advantage or these groups, see how in my new article on Experts Exchange.

      Just another technique to consider when building applications which require users to be assigned to roles.
