Identity Manager 8.1 - Business Roles Administration Guide

Managing Business Roles Role Mining in One Identity Manager

How to Edit Conflicting Business Roles

You can define conflicting roles to prevent employees, devices, or workdesks from being assigned to several roles at the same time and from obtaining mutually exclusive company resources through these roles. At the same time, you specify which business roles need to be mutually exclusive. This means you may not assign these roles to one and the same employee (device, workdesk).

NOTE: Only roles, which are defined directly as conflicting roles cannot be assigned to the same employee (device, workdesk). Definitions made on parent or child roles do not affect the assignment.

To configure inheritance exclusion

  • Set the configuration parameter QER | Structures | ExcludeStructures in the Designer and compile the database.

To define inheritance exclusion for a business role

  1. Select Business roles | <Role class> in Manager.
  2. Select a business role in the result list.
  3. Select Edit conflicting business roles.
  4. In Add assignments, assign the business roles that are mutually exclusive to the selected business role.

    - OR -

    In Remove assignments, remove the business roles that are no longer mutually exclusive.

  5. Save the changes.

Assigning extended properties

You can assign extended properties to business roles. Extended properties are meta objects that cannot be mapped directly in One Identity Manager, for example, operating codes, cost codes or cost accounting areas. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

To specify extended properties for a business role

  1. Select the category Business roles | <Role class>.
  2. Select the business role in the result list.
  3. Select Assign extended properties in the task view.
  4. Assign extended properties in Add assignments.

    - OR -

    Remove extended properties from Remove assignments.

  5. Save the changes.

Creating Assignment Resources

You may add assignment resources to single business roles. This means you can limit assignment resources to a certain business role in the Web Portal. When the assignment resource is requested, it is no longer necessary to request the business role as well. It is automatically a part of the assignment request. For more information, see theOne Identity Manager IT Shop Administration Guide.

To limit an assignment resource to a business role

  1. Select the category Business roles | <Role class>.
  2. Select a business role in the result list.
  3. Select Create assignment resource... in the task view.

    This starts a wizard, which takes you through adding an assignment resource.
