Manually linking employees to Google Workspace user accounts

An employee can be linked to multiple Google Workspace user accounts, for example, so that you can assign an administrative user account in addition to the default user account. One employee can also use default user accounts with different types.

NOTE: To enable working with identities for user accounts, the employees also need identities. You can only link user accounts to which an identity is assigned with employees who have this same identity.

To manually assign user accounts to an employee

  1. In the Manager, select the Employees > Employees category.

  2. Select the employee in the result list and run the Assign Google Workspace user accounts task.

  3. Assign the user accounts.

  4. Save the changes.

Supported user account types

Different types of user accounts, such as default user accounts, administrative user accounts, service accounts, or privileged user accounts, can be mapped in One Identity Manager.

The following properties are used for mapping different user account types.

  • Identity

    The Identity property (IdentityType column) is used to describe the type of user account.

    Table 15: Identities of user accounts
    Identity Description Value of the IdentityType column

    Primary identity

    Employee's default user account.


    Organizational identity

    Secondary user account used for different roles in the organization, for example for subcontracts with other functional areas.


    Personalized admin identity

    User account with administrative permissions, used by one employee.


    Sponsored identity

    User account used for a specific purpose. For example, for training purposes.


    Shared identity

    User account with administrative permissions, used by several employees.


    Service identity

    Service account.


    NOTE: To enable working with identities for user accounts, the employees also need identities. You can only link user accounts to which an identity is assigned with employees who have this same identity.

    The primary identity, the organizational identity, and the personalized admin identity are used for different user accounts, which can be used by the same actual employee to perform their different tasks within the company.

    To provide user accounts with a personalized admin identity or an organizational identity for an employee, you create subidentities for the employee. These subidentities are then linked to user accounts, enabling you to assign the required permissions to the different user accounts.

    User accounts with a sponsored identity, shared identity, or service identity are linked to pseudo employees that do not refer to a real employee. These pseudo employees are needed so that permissions can be inherited by the user accounts. When evaluating reports, attestations, or compliance checks, check whether pseudo employees need to be considered separately.

    For more information about mapping employee identities, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

  • Privileged user account

    Privileged user accounts are used to provide employees with additional privileges. This includes administrative user accounts or service accounts, for example. The user accounts are labeled with the Privileged user account property (IsPrivilegedAccount column).

Detailed information about this topic

Default user accounts

Normally, each employee obtains a default user account, which has the permissions they require for their regular work. The user accounts are linked to the employee. The effect of the link and the scope of the employee’s inherited properties on the user accounts can be configured through an account definition and its manage levels.

To create default user accounts through account definitions

  1. Create an account definition and assign the Unmanaged and Full managed manage levels.

  2. Specify the effect of temporarily or permanently disabling, deleting, or the security risk of an employee on its user accounts and group memberships for each manage level.

  3. Create a formatting rule for IT operating data.

    You use the mapping rule to define which rules are used to map IT operating data for user accounts and which default values are used if no IT operating data can be determined through a person's primary roles.

    The type of IT operating data required depends on the target system. The following setting are recommended for default user accounts:

    • In the mapping rules for the IsGroupAccount_Group, IsGroupAccount_PaSku, and IsGroupAccount_OrgAdminRole columns, use the default value 1 and set the Always use default value option.

    • In the mapping rule for the IdentityType column, use the default value Primary and enable Always use default value.

  4. Enter the effective IT operating data for the target system. Select the concrete target system under Effects on.

    Specify in the departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles that IT operating data should apply when you set up a user account.

  5. Assign the account definition to employees.

    When the account definition is assigned to an employee, a new user account is created through the inheritance mechanism and subsequent processing.

Administrative user accounts

An administrative user account must be used for certain administrative tasks. Administrative user accounts are usually predefined by the target system and have fixed names and login names, such as Administrator.

Administrative user accounts are imported into One Identity Manager during synchronization.

NOTE: Some administrative user accounts can be automatically identified as privileged user accounts. To do this, in the Designer, enable the Mark selected user accounts as privileged schedule.
