Dynamic system user
Dynamic system users are used for logging into One Identity Manager tools with role-based authentication modules. First, the employee memberships in the One Identity Manager application roles are determined during login. Assignments of permissions groups to One Identity Manager application roles are used to determine which permissions groups apply to the employee. A dynamic system user is determined from these permissions groups that will be used for the employee’s login.
NOTE: You cannot edit dynamic system users. If no role-based logins of employees who use dynamic system users are performed for some time, you should delete the dynamic system users for performance reasons. A new dynamic system user is created during the next role-based employee login.
To delete system users
In the Designer, enable the Common | DynamicUserLifetime configuration parameter and enter the maximum retention period in days for dynamic system users.
If the configuration parameter is set, dynamic system users, whose retention period has expired, are deleted from the database as part of the daily maintenance tasks.
Permissions for tables and columns
In the Designer, you can edit permissions using the Permissions Editor. You can also simulate the permissions for the individual system users in the Permissions Editor.
With the Permissions Editor, you can:
Grant permissions for custom tables and custom columns to custom permissions groups
Grant permissions for predefined tables and predefined columns in the One Identity Manager schema to custom permissions groups
Grant permissions for custom tables and custom columns to predefined permissions groups
Permissions of predefined permissions groups for predefined tables and predefined columns of the One Identity Manager schema cannot be changed
For custom schema extensions, use the Schema Extension program to specify permissions groups. A permissions group is given read and write permissions as well as a permissions group with read-only permissions. This make initial access to the custom schema extensions possible with the One Identity Manager administration tools.
