Attestation and Recertification

Table 1: General Configuration Parameter for Attestation
Configuration parameter Meaning
QER\Attestation Preprocessor relevant configuration parameter for controlling the model parts for attestation. Changes to the parameter require recompiling the database.

If the parameter is enabled you can use the attestation function.

Managers or others responsible for compliance can use the One Identity Manager attestation function to certify correctness of access permissions, authorizations, requests or exception approvals either scheduled or on demand. "Recertification" is the term generally used to describe regular certification of permissions. The One Identity Manager uses the same workflows for recertification and attestation.

Attestation policies are defined in the One Identity Manager, which you use to carry out attestations. Attestation policies specify which objects are attested when, how often and by whom. Once an attestation is performed, the One Identity Manager creates attestation cases, which contain all the necessary information about the attestation objects and the attestor responsible. The attestor checks the attestation objects. They verify the correctness of the data and initiate any changes that need to be made if the data conflicts with internal rules.

Attestation cases record the entire attestation sequence. Each attestation step in the attestation case can be audit-proof reconstructed. Attestations are run regularly using scheduled tasks. You can also trigger single attestations manually.

Attestation is complete when the attestation case has been granted or denied approval. You specify how to deal with granted or denied attestations on a company basis.

TIP: The One Identity Manager provides various default attestation procedures for different data situations and default attestation procedures. If you use these default attestation procedures, you can configure how you deal with denied attestations.

For more information, see Default Attestation and Withdrawal of Entitlements.
