Adding Active Directory Groups to the IT Shop

Adding Active Directory Groups to the IT Shop

Once a group has been assigned to an IT Shop shelf, it can be requested by the shop customers. To ensure it can be requested, further prerequisites need to be guaranteed.

  • The group must be labeled with the option IT Shop.
  • The group must be assigned to a service item.
  • The group must be labeled with the option Only use in IT Shop if the group can only be assigned to employees through IT Shop requests. Direct assignment to hierarchical roles or user accounts is no longer permitted.

NOTE: IT Shop administrators can assign groups to IT Shop shelves in the case of role-based login. Target system administrators are not authorized to add groups in the IT Shop.

To add a group to the IT Shop

  1. Select the category Active Directory | Groups (non role-based login).

    - OR -

    Select the category Entitlements | Active Directory groups (role-based login).

  2. Select the group in the result list.
  3. Select Add to IT Shop in the task view.
  4. Assign the group to the IT Shop shelves in Add assignments.
  5. Save the changes.

Table 71: Configuration Parameter for Automatically Add Groups in the IT Shop
Configuration parameter Description

QER\ITShop\GroupAutoPublish

Preprocessor relevant configuration parameter for automatically adding groups to the IT Shop. This configuration parameter specifies whether all Active Directory and SharePoint target system groups are automatically added to the IT Shop. Changes to the parameter require recompiling the database.

QER\ITShop\GroupAutoPublish\ADSGroupExcludeList

This configuration parameter contains a list of all Active Directory groups for which automatic IT Shop assignment should not take place. Names given in a pipe (|) delimited list that is handled as a regular search pattern.

Example:

.*Administrator.*|Exchange.*|.*Admins|.*Operators|IIS_IUSRS

To add groups automatically to the IT Shop

  1. Set the configuration parameter "QER\Policy\GroupAutoPublish" in the Designer.
  2. Set the configuration parameter "QER\ITShop\GroupAutoPublish\ADSGroupExcludeList" in the Designer and specify Active Directory groups which are not to be added automatically to the IT Shop.
  3. Compile the database.

The groups are added automatically to the IT Shop from now on.

  • Synchronization ensures that the groups are added to the IT Shop. If necessary, you can manually start synchronization with the Synchronization Editor.
  • New groups created in One Identity Manager are added to the IT Shop.

The following step are run to add a group to the IT Shop.

  1. A service item is determined for the group.

    The service item is tested and modified for each group as required. The service item name corresponds to the name of the group. The service item is assigned to one of the default service categories.

    • The service item is modified for groups with service items.
    • Groups without service items are allocated new service items.
  2. An application role for product owners is determined and the service item is assigned. Product owners can approve requests for membership in these groups. By default, the group's account manager is established as the product owner.

    NOTE: The application role for product owners must be below the application role Request & Fulfillment | IT Shop | Product owners.
    • If the group's account manager is already a member of an application role for product owners, then this application role is assigned to the service item.
    • If the group's account manager is not a member of a product owner application role, a new application role is added. The name of the application role corresponds to the name of the account manager.
      • If the account manager is a user account or a contact, the user account's employee or contact is added to the application role.
      • If you are dealing with a group of account managers, the employees of all user accounts in this group are added to the application role.
    • If the group does not have an account manager, the default application role Request & Fulfillment | IT Shop | Product owner | without owner in AD is used.
  3. The group is labeled with the option IT Shop and assigned to the IT Shop shelf "Active Directory groups" in the shop "Identity & Access Lifecycle".

Then product owners for shop customers group memberships can make requests through the Web Portal.

NOTE: When a One Identity Manager group is irrevocably deleted from the database, the associated service item is deleted.
