Changing manage levels for LDAP user accounts

The default manage level is applied if you create user accounts using automatic employee assignment. You can change a user account manage level later.

To change the manage level for a user account

  1. In the Manager, select the LDAP | User accounts category.

  2. Select the user account in the result list.

  3. Select the Change master data task.

  4. On the General tab, select the manage level in the Manage level menu.

  5. Save the changes.

Assigning LDAP groups directly to LDAP user accounts

Groups can be assigned directly or indirectly to a user account. Indirect assignment is carried out by allocating the employee and groups in hierarchical roles, such as departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles. If the employee has a user account in LDAP, the groups in the role are inherited by this user account.

To react quickly to special requests, you can assign groups directly to the user account.

NOTE: User accounts cannot be manually added to dynamic groups. Memberships in a dynamic group are determined through the condition of the dynamic group.

To assign groups directly to user accounts

  1. In the Manager, select the LDAP | User accounts category.

  2. Select the user account in the result list.

  3. Select the Assign groups task.

  4. In the Add assignments pane, assign groups.

    TIP: In the Remove assignments pane, you can remove the assignment of groups.

    To remove an assignment

    • Select the group and double-click .
  5. Save the changes.

Assigning extended properties to LDAP user accounts

Extended properties are meta objects, such as operating codes, cost codes, or cost accounting areas that cannot be mapped directly in One Identity Manager.

To specify extended properties for a user account

  1. In the Manager, select the LDAP | User accounts category.

  2. Select the user account in the result list.
  3. Select the Assign extended properties task.
  4. In the Add assignments pane, assign extended properties.

    TIP: In the Remove assignments pane, you can remove assigned extended properties.

    To remove an assignment

    • Select the extended property and double-click .
  5. Save the changes.

For detailed information about using extended properties, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

Automatic assignment of employees to LDAP user accounts

When you add a user account, an existing employee can be assigned automatically or added if necessary. In the process, the employee master data is created on the basis of existing user account master data. This mechanism can be triggered after a new user account is created either manually or through synchronization. Define criteria for finding employees to apply to automatic employee assignment. If a user account is linked to an employee through the current mode, the user account is given, through an internal process, the default manage level of the account definition entered in the user account's target system. You can customize user account properties depending on how the behavior of the manage level is defined.

If you run this procedure during working hours, automatic assignment of employees to user accounts takes place from that moment onwards. If you disable the procedure again later, the changes only affect user accounts added or updated after this point in time. Existing employee assignments to user accounts remain intact.

NOTE: It is not recommended to assign employees using automatic employee assignment in the case of administrative user accounts. Use Change master data to assign employees to administrative user accounts for the respective user account.

Run the following tasks to assign employees automatically.

  • If you want employees to be assigned during the synchronization of user accounts, in the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | PersonAutoFullsync configuration parameter and select the required mode.

  • If you want employees to be assigned outside synchronization, in the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | PersonAutoDefault configuration parameter and select the required mode.

  • Use the TargetSystem | LDAP | PersonAutoDisabledAccounts configuration parameter to specify whether employees can be automatically assigned to disabled user accounts. User accounts do not obtain an account definition.

  • Assign an account definition to the domain. Ensure that the manage level to be used is entered as the default manage level.

  • Define the search criteria for employees assigned to the domain.

NOTE:

The following applies for synchronization:

  • Automatic employee assignment takes effect if user accounts are added or updated.

The following applies outside synchronization:

  • Automatic employee assignment takes effect if user accounts are added.

NOTE:

Following a synchronization, employees are automatically created for the user accounts in the default installation. If an account definition for the domain is not yet known at the time of synchronization, user accounts are linked with employees. However, account definitions are not assigned. The user accounts are therefore in a Linked state.

To manage the user accounts using account definitions, assign an account definition and a manage level to these user accounts.

For more information, see Managing LDAP user accounts through account definitions.

For more detailed information about assigning employees automatically, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.
