Identity Manager 8.0.1 - Application Management Administration Guide

Managing Applications

One Identity Manager allows you to manage applications comfortably and to assign them to employees. You can setup applications in the Manager. Applications can be grouped into application packages. Applications and application packages are assigned to employees. You can make assignments directly or indirectly by assigning them to roles. Applications and application packages can be requested from the IT Shop.

The One Identity Manager components for managing applications are available if the configuration parameters "Software" and "Software\Application" are set.

  • Check whether the configuration parameters are set in the Designer. Otherwise, set the configuration parameters and compile the database.
