Entering Master Data for Azure Active Directory User Accounts

Entering Master Data for Azure Active Directory User Accounts

A user account can be linked to an employee in the One Identity Manager. You can also manage user accounts separately from employees.

NOTE: It is recommended to use account definitions to set up user accounts for company employees. In this case, some of the master data described in the following is mapped through templates from employee master data.

NOTE: If employees obtain their user accounts through account definitions, they have to have a central user account and obtain their company IT data through assignment to a primary department, primary location or a primary cost center.

TIP: You can combine the account definition for creating the user account and the subscription that will be used into one system role. in this way, the employee automatically obtains a user account and a subscription.

An employee can obtain this system role directly, through departments, cost centers, location or business roles or by IT Shop request.
