Assigning Group to User Accounts

Assigning Group to User Accounts

Groups can be assigned directly or indirectly to user accounts. In the case of indirect assignment, employees and groups are assigned to hierarchical roles, such as , departments, cost centers, locations or business roles. The groups assigned to an employee are calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance.

If you add an employee to roles and that employee owns a user account in a target system, the user account is added to the group. Prerequisites for indirect assignment of employees to user accounts:

  • Direct assignment of employees and groups of custom target systems is permitted for role classes (department, cost center, location or business role).
  • The user accounts are marked with the option Groups can be inherited.

Furthermore, groups can be assigned to employees through IT Shop requests. Add employees to a shop as customers so that groups can be assigned through IT Shop requests. All groups are assigned to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested groups are assigned to the employees after approval is granted.

For more detailed information about inheriting company resources, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.
