Changing manage levels for Active Directory contacts

The Unmanaged manage level is used when you create contacts through automatic identity assignment. You can change the contact's manage level later.

To change the manage level for a contact

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Contacts category.

  2. Select the contact in the result list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Select the manage level in the Manage level list on the General tab.

  5. 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 type

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

    Table 12: Identity types of user accounts
    Identity type Description Value of the IdentityType column

    Primary identity

    Identity's default user account.


    Organizational identity

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


    Personalized administrator identity

    User account with administrative permissions, used by an identity.


    Sponsored identity

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


    Shared identity

    User account with administrative permissions, used by multiple identities.


    Service identity

    Service account.


  • Privileged user account

    Privileged user accounts are used to provide identities 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 identity obtains a default user account, which has the permissions they require for their regular work. The user accounts are linked to the identity. The effect of the link and the scope of the identity’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 how an identity's temporary deactivation, permanent deactivation, deletion, and security risks affect its user accounts and group memberships at 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 an identity'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 rule for the IsGroupAccount column, use the default value 1 and enable 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 identities.

    When the account definition is assigned to an identity, 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.
