Assigning software to workdesks and identities

You can assign software directly or indirectly to identities or workdesks. In the case of indirect assignment, identities (workdesks) and software applications are grouped into hierarchical roles. The number of software applications is calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance assigned to an identity (or workdesk).

Software can also be assigned to identities through IT Shop requests. Add identities to a shop as customers so that software can be assigned through IT Shop requests. Any software that can be assigned to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested software is assigned to the identities after approval is granted.

Using system roles, you can group together software and assign it to identities and workdesks as a package. You can create system roles that only contain software. You can also group any number of company resources into a system role.

Prerequisites for indirect assignment of software to identities
  • Assignment of identities and software is permitted for the role class (department, cost centers, location, or business role).

Prerequisites for indirect assignment of software to workdesks
  • Assignment of workdesks and software is permitted for the role class (department, cost center, location or business role).

NOTE: There are other configuration settings that play a role when company resources are inherited through departments, cost centers, locations, and business roles. For example, role inheritance might be blocked or inheritance of identities or workdesks not allowed. For more detailed information about the basic principles for assigning company resources, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.
