Different types of user accounts, such as default user accounts, administrative user accounts or service accounts, can be mapped in One Identity Manager.
The following properties are used for mapping different user account types.
The identity describes the type of user account.
|Identity||Description||Value of the column "IdentityType"|
|Primary identity||Employee's default user account.||Primary|
|Organizational identity||Secondary user account used for various roles within the organization, f. ex. In sub-agreements with other functional areas.||Organizational|
|Personalized admin identity||User account with administration rights used by one person.||Admin|
|Sponsored identity||User account used for example for training purposes.||Sponsored|
|Shared identity||User account with administration rights used by several people.||Shared|
|Service identity||Service account.||Service|
Use this option to flag user accounts with special, privileged permissions. This includes administrative user accounts or service accounts, for example. This option is not used to flag default user accounts.
Normally, each employee obtains a default user account, which has the permissions they require for their regular work. The user accounts are linked to the employee. The effect of the link and the scope of the employee’s inherited properties on the user accounts can be configured through an account definition and its manage levels.
To create default user accounts through account definitions
An account definition specifies which rules are used to generate the IT operating data for example, whether the container for a user account is made up of the employee's department, cost center, location or business role and which default values will be used if no IT operating data can be found through the employee's primary roles.
Which IT operating data is required, depends on the target system. The following setting are recommended for default user accounts:
Specify in the departments, cost centers, locations or business roles, which IT operating data should apply when you set up a user account.
When the account definition is assigned to an employee, a new user account is created through the inheritance mechanism and subsequent processing.
An administrative user account must be used for certain administrative tasks. Administrative user accounts are normally predefined in the target system and have fixed identifiers and login names, for example, "Administrator".
Administrative user accounts are loaded through synchronization into the One Identity Manager. To assign a manager to administrative user accounts, assign an employee to the user account in One Identity Manager.
NOTE: You can automatically label administrative user accounts as privileged user accounts. To do this, set the schedule "Mark selected user accounts as privileged" in the Designer.
