Adding account definitions to the IT Shop

An account definition can be requested by shop customers when it is assigned to an IT Shop shelf. To ensure it can be requested, further prerequisites need to be guaranteed.

  • The account definition must be labeled with the IT Shop option.

  • The account definition must be assigned to a service item.

    TIP: In the Web Portal, all products that can be requested are grouped together by service category. To make the account definition easier to find in the Web Portal, assign a service category to the service item.

  • If the account definition is only assigned to employees using IT Shop assignments, you must also set the Only for use in IT Shop option. Direct assignment to hierarchical roles may not be possible.

NOTE: IT Shop administrators can assign account definitions to IT Shop shelves if login is role-based. Target system administrators are not authorized to add account definitions in the IT Shop.

To add an account definition to the IT Shop

  1. In the Manager, select the LDAP | Basic configuration data | Account definitions | Account definitions (non role-based login) category.

Password policies for LDAP user accounts

One Identity Manager provides you with support for creating complex password policies, for example, for system user passwords, the employees' central password as well as passwords for individual target systems. Password polices apply not only when the user enters a password but also when random passwords are generated.

Predefined password policies are supplied with the default installation that you can use or customize if required. You can also define your own password policies.
