Editing mail templates for identity auditing

For more information about creating and editing mail template, see the One Identity Manager Operational Guide.

A mail template consists of general main data such as target format, importance, or mail notification confidentiality, and one or more mail definitions. Mail text is defined in several languages in the mail template. This ensures that the language of the recipient is taken into account when the email is generated.

Mitigating controls

Effective permissions of employees, roles, or user accounts are checked in the context of Identity Audit on the basis of regulatory requirements. Violation of regulatory requirements can harbor different risks for companies. To evaluate these risks, you can apply risk indexes to compliance rules. These risk indexes provide information about the risk involved for the company if a particular rule is violated. Once the risks have been identified and evaluated, mitigating controls can be implemented.

Mitigating controls are independent on One Identity Manager’s functionality. They are not monitored through One Identity Manager.

Mitigating controls describe controls that are implemented if a compliance rule was violated. The next rule check should not find any rule violations once the controls have been applied.

An example of a mitigating control is the assignment of system entitlements only through authorized requests in the IT Shop. If system entitlements are issued to the employee through the IT Shop, a rule check can be integrated into the request’s approval process. System entitlements that would lead to a rule violation are therefore assigned not at all or only after gaining exception approval. The risk that rules are violated is thus reduced.

To edit mitigating controls

  • In the Designer, set the QER | CalculateRiskIndex configuration parameter and compile the database.

If you disable the configuration parameter at a later date, model components and scripts that are not longer required, are disabled. SQL procedures and triggers are still carried out. For more information about the behavior of preprocessor relevant configuration parameters and conditional compiling, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.
