Specifying Categories for Inheriting Permissions

In One Identity Manager, groups, administrative roles, subscriptions and disabled service plans can be selectively inherited by user accounts. For this, groups(administrative roles, subscriptions and disabled service plans) and user accounts are divided into categories. The categories can be freely selected and are specified by a template. Each category is given a specific position within the template. The mapping rule contains different tables. Use the user account table to specify categories for target system dependent user accounts. Enter your categories for the structural profiles, administrative roles, subscriptions and disabled service plans in the other tables. Each table contains the category items "Position1" to "Position31".

To define a category

  1. Select the category Azure Active Directory | Tenants.
  2. Select the tenant from the result list.
  3. Select Change master data in the task view.
  4. Switch to the MappingClosed rule category tab.
  5. Expand the respective base node of a table.
  6. Click to enable category.
  7. Enter a name for the user account and group categories (administration roles, subscriptions, disabled service plans) in the current language.
  8. Save the changes.
