Mapping Unix objects in One Identity Manager

One Identity Manager maps the user accounts and groups of a Unix host. These objects are imported into the One Identity Manager database during synchronization. You cannot display or edit their properties in the Manager.

Detailed information about this topic

Unix hosts

The target system of synchronization with a Unix-based target system is the host. Hosts are added as the base objects of the synchronization in One Identity Manager. They are used to configure provisioning processes, automatic assignment of identities to user accounts, and to pass down Unix user groups to user accounts.

NOTE: One Identity Manager sets up the domains in the Synchronization Editor database. After initial synchronization of the hosts, you must enter the primary group, which will be used by default to set up the user accounts.

To edit the main data for a Unix host

  1. In the Manager, select the Unix > Hosts category.

  2. Select the host in the result list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Edit the host's main data.

  5. Save the changes.

General main data of Unix hosts

Enter the following general main data.

Table 19: General main data for a host
Property Description

Host name

Name of the host.

Primary group

User account's primary group. This group is used as primary group when creating a user account.

Time zone

Time zone of the host. The time zone is taken into account when determining the last login time for user accounts.


The computer is connected to this device. Specify a new device using the button next to the menu.

AIX system

Specifies whether this host is an IBM AIX system. The following properties are offered additionally for user accounts on IBM AIX systems.

Account definition (initial)

Initial account definition for creating user accounts. This account definition is used if automatic assignment of identities to user accounts is used for this host and user accounts should be created that are already managed (Linked configured state). The account definition's default manage level is applied.

User accounts are only linked to the identity (Linked) if no account definition is given. This is the case on initial synchronization, for example.

Target system managers

Application role, in which target system managers are specified for the host. Target system managers only edit the objects from hosts that are assigned to them. Therefore, each host can have a different target system manager assigned to it.

Select the One Identity Manager application role whose members are responsible for administration of this host. Use the button to add a new application role.

Synchronized by

Type of synchronization through which the data is synchronized between the host and One Identity Manager. As soon as objects for this host are available in One Identity Manager, the type of synchronization can no longer be changed.

If you create a host with the Synchronization Editor, One Identity Manager is used.

No synchronization



NOTE: If you select No synchronization, you can define custom processes to exchange data between One Identity Manager and the target system.

Operating system description

Description of the operating system.


Installed distribution of the operating system.

Distribution version

Version of the installed distribution.

Kernel version

Current version of the kernel.

Operating system type

Type of operating system, such as Linux, AIX, or UNIX.

Defining categories for the inheritance of entitlements

In One Identity Manager, user accounts can selectively inherit groups. To do this, groups and user accounts are divided into categories. The categories can be freely selected and are specified using a mapping rule. Each category is given a specific position within the template. The template contains two tables; the user account table and the group table. Use the user account table to specify categories for target system dependent user accounts. In the group table, enter your categories for the target system-dependent groups. Each table contains the category positions position 1 to position 63.

To define a category

  1. In the Manager, select the host in the Unix > Hosts category.

  2. Select the Change main data task.

  3. Switch to the Mapping rule category tab.

  4. Extend the relevant roots of the user account table or group table.

  5. To enable the category, double-click .

  6. Enter a category name of your choice for user accounts and groups in the login language that you use.

  7. Save the changes.
