Before you can gather information on the data in your enterprise, you must set up and configure the Data Governance Edition components. Launch the Manager application to configure the following Data Governance Edition components:
Add and assign the credentials (service account) to ensure that you can access resources on the computers within the domain. For more information, see Authentication using service accounts and managed domains.
Assign a service account to the domains that contain the computers hosting the data you want to manage. This link between a service account and an Active Directory domain makes it a "managed domain." For more information, see Readying a service account and domains for deployment.
Add managed hosts which are network objects that can host resources and can be assigned an agent to monitor security and collect resource activity. For more information, see Working with managed hosts and agents.
In order to process some of the Data Governance Edition report requests and to process self-service requests for governed data from the web portal, a One Identity manager service must be running as an account that is able to access the Data Governance service (that is, either a Data Governance service account or an account mapped to an employee with the appropriate One Identity Manager application roles). The job servers that host these One Identity Manager services must be marked in the database with the "Data Governance connector" flag using the job server editor in the Designer application.
To set the connector flag in the database
To get a complete view of your environment, you must first run the One Identity Manager Synchronization Editor to configure the synchronize between the One Identity Manager database and your target environments (Active Directory and if applicable, SharePoint and UNIX).
Launch the One Identity Manager Synchronization Editor to set up a synchronization project to load Active Directory objects into the One Identity Manager database.
For more information, see Setting up synchronization with an Active Directory environment in the One Identity Manager Administration Guide for Connecting to Active Directory.
If applicable, once your Active Directory synchronization projects have completed, set up a synchronization project to load SharePoint objects into the One Identity Manager database.
Important: Active Directory synchronization MUST be complete before beginning the SharePoint synchronization.
For more information, see Setting up synchronization with a SharePoint environment in the One Identity Manager Administration Guide for Connecting to SharePoint.
In order to assign ownership to an NFS Export resource, ensure that an Active Directory employee is assigned to the UNIX account.
