Entering Master Data for LDAP User Accounts

Entering Master Data for LDAP 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.

  1. Select the category LDAP | User accounts.
  2. Select the user account in the result list and run the task Change master data.

    - OR-

    Click in the result list toolbar.

  3. Edit the user account's resource data.
  4. Save the changes.
