User Account Master Data

User Account Master Data

Enter the following data for a user account:

Table 25: User Account Properties
Property Description


Employee that uses this user account. An employee is already entered if the user account was generated by an account definition. If you create the user account manually, you can select an employee in the menu.

Account definition

Account definition through which the user account was created.

Use the account definition to automatically fill user account master data and to specify a manage level for the user account. The One Identity Manager finds the IT operating data of the assigned employee and enters it in the corresponding fields in the user account.

NOTE: The account definition cannot be changed once the user account has been saved.

To create the user account manually through an account definition, enter an employee in the Employee box. You can select all the account definitions assigned to this employee and through which no user account has been created for this employee.

Manage level

User account's manage level. Select a manage level from the menu. You can only specify the manage level can if you have also entered an account definition. All manage levels of the selected account definition are available in the menu.

Target System Target system in which the user account is created.

First name

The user’s first name. If you have assigned an account definition, the input field is automatically filled out with respect to the manage level.

Last name

The user’s last name. If you have assigned an account definition, the input field is automatically filled out with respect to the manage level.

Container Container in which to create the user account. If you have assigned an account definition, the container is determined from the company IT data for the assigned employee depending on the manage level of the user account. When the container is selected, the defined name for the user is created using a formatting rule.

Login name

Name the user uses to log onto the target system.

If you have assigned an account definition, the input field is automatically filled out with respect to the manage level.


User account identifier. The identifier is made up of the user‘s first and last names.

Canonical name

User account's distinguished name. The canonical name is generated automatically and should not be changed.

Distinguished name

User account's distinguished name. The distinguished name is determined using a template and must not be changed.

Risk index (calculated)

Maximum risk index values for all assigned groups. This property is only visible if the configuration parameter "QER\CalculateRiskIndex" is set. For more detailed information, see the .One Identity Manager Risk Assessment Administration Guide


Categories for the inheritance of groups by the user account. Select one or more categories from the menu. Groups can be selectively inherited by user accounts. To do this, groups and user accounts or contacts are divided into categories.

Account expiry date

The date up to which the user can log into a target system with this user account.

If a leaving date is specified for an employee, it will be used as the account expiry date depending on the manage level. Any existing account expiry date is overwritten in this case.

NOTE: If the employee's leaving date is deleted at a later point in time, the user account expiry date remains intact!

Last login

Date of last target system login.

Password last changed

Data of last password change.


Password for the user account. Depending on the configuration parameter "Person\UseCentralPassword" the employee’s central password can be mapped to the user account‘s password. If you use an initial password for the user accounts, it is automatically entered when a user account is created.

NOTE: One Identity Manager password policies are taken into account when a user password is being verified. Ensure that the password policy does not violate the target system's requirements.

Password confirmation

Reconfirm password.

  • If an employee has requested group membership in the IT Shop and the request is granted approval, the employee's user account only inherits the group if the option is set.
