LDAP groups

You can collect user accounts, contacts, computers, and groups into groups that can be used to regulate access to resources in the LDAP directory. In One Identity Manager, you can set up new groups or to edit already existing groups.

To add users to groups, you assign the groups directly to users. This can be assignments of groups to departments, cost centers, locations, business roles, or the IT Shop.

To edit group master data

  1. In the Manager, select the LDAP | Groups category.

  2. Select the group in the result list and run the Change master data task.

  3. On the master data form, edit the master data for the group.

  4. Save the changes.

Risk index

Value for evaluating the risk of assigning the group to user accounts. Enter a value between 0 and 1. This input field is only visible if the QER | CalculateRiskIndex configuration parameter is activated.

For more detailed information about risk assessment, see the One Identity Manager Risk Assessment Administration Guide.

Category

Categories for group inheritance. Groups can be selectively inherited by user accounts. To do this, groups and user accounts are divided into categories. Select one or more categories from the menu.

Description

Text field for additional explanation.

Condition LDAP filter for finding memberships in a dynamic group.
dynamic group Specifies whether this is a dynamic group.

IT Shop

Specifies whether the group can be requested through the IT Shop. If this option is set, the group can be requested by the employees through the Web Portal and distributed with a defined approval process. The group can still be assigned directly to hierarchical roles.

Only for use in IT Shop

Specifies whether the group can only be requested through the IT Shop. If this option is set, the group can be requested by the employees through the Web Portal and distributed with a defined approval process. Direct assignment of the group to hierarchical roles or user accounts is not permitted.

Assigning LDAP groups directly to LDAP user accounts and LDAP computers

You can assign LDAP groups directly or indirectly to LDAP user accounts and LDAP computers. Employees (workdesks or devices) and LDAP groups are grouped into hierarchical roles in the case of indirect assignment. The number of LDAP groups assigned to an employee (workdesk or device) is calculated from the position within the hierarchy and inheritance direction.

  • If you add an employee to roles and that employee owns an LDAP user account, the LDAP user account is added to the LDAP group.

  • If you add a device to roles, the LDAP computer that references the device is added to the LDAP groups.

  • If a device owns a workdesk and you add the workdesk to roles, the LDAP computer, which references this device, is also added to all LDAP groups of the workdesk's roles.

Prerequisites for the indirect assignment of employees to LDAP user accounts
  • The assignment of employees and LDAP groups is permitted for departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles.

  • LDAP user accounts are labeled with the Groups can be inherited option.

  • The LDAP user account is linked to an employee.

Prerequisites for indirect assignment to LDAP computers
  • The assignment of devices and LDAP groups is permitted for departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles.

  • The LDAP computer is connected to a device.

  • The device is labeled as a PC or server.

  • The TargetSystem | LDAP | HardwareInGroupFromOrg configuration parameter is set.

Prerequisites for indirect assignment to LDAP computers through workdesks are:
  • The assignment of workdesks and LDAP groups is permitted for departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles.

  • The LDAP computer is connected to a device.

  • The device is labeled as a PC or server.

  • The device owns a workdesk.

Furthermore, LDAP groups can be requested through the Web Portal. To do this, add employees to a shop as customers. All LDAP groups are assigned to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested LDAP groups are assigned to the employees after approval is granted.

Through system roles, LDAP groups can be grouped together and assigned to employees and workdesks as a package. You can create system roles that contain only LDAP groups. System entitlements from different target systems can also be grouped together in a system role.

To react quickly to special requests, you can also assign LDAP groups directly to LDAP user accounts and LDAP computers.
