Delete the SaaS product user

You can use the Active Roles Web Interface to delete an existing Active Roles Starling Connect user. When the Active Roles user is deleted, then the user is deleted on the selected connected system.

Deprovision an existing Active Roles user for SaaS products

Active Roles provides the ability to deprovision SaaS product users. When an Active Roles user is deprovisioned, if the user is mapped to Starling Connect, then the user is deprovisioned from the selected connected system. This means the Active Role SaaS product user is prevented from logging on to the network and connecting to any of the connected systems through the registered connectors.

The Deprovision command on a user updates the account as prescribed by the deprovisioning policies.

Active Roles comes with a default policy to automate some commonly-used deprovisioning tasks, and allows the administrator to configure and apply additional policies.

To deprovision a user for a SaaS product

  1. On the Active Roles Web interface Navigation bar, click Directory Management.
  2. On the Views tab in the Browse pane, click Active Directory.

    The list of Active Directory domains is displayed.

  3. Click the specific domain, Container or the Organizational Unit, and then select the check box corresponding to the specific user, which you want to deprovision for SaaS products

  4. Select the user, and in the Command pane, click Deprovision.

    A message is displayed prompting you to confirm the account deprovision.

  1. Click Yes, to continue

    Wait while Active Roles updates the user.

    After the task is completed, a message is displayed that the account is deprovisioned successfully from Active Roles.

    If the user is mapped to Starling Connect, then the user is deprovisioned from the connected systems.

To undo deprovision of a user for a SaaS product

  1. On the Active Roles Web interface Navigation bar, click Directory Management.
  2. On the Views tab in the Browse pane, click Active Directory.

    The list of Active Directory domains is displayed.

SCIM attribute mapping with Active Directory

Active Roles provides support to connect to Starling Connect to manage the user provisioning and deprovisioning activities for the registered connectors. This is achieved through the internal attribute mapping mechanism. The AD attributes are mapped to SCIM attributes to perform each operation.
