Overview of all Assignments

Overview of all Assignments

The report "Overview of all Assignments" is displayed for certain objects, for example, permissions, compliance rules or roles. The report finds all the roles, for example, departments, cost centers, locations, business roles and IT Shop structures in which there are employee who own the selected base object. In this case, direct as well as indirect base object assignments are included.

Example
  • If the report is created for a resource, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this resource.
  • If the report is created for a group, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this group.
  • If the report is created for a compliance rule, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this compliance rule.
  • If the report is created for a department, all roles are determined in which employees of the selected department are also members.
  • If the report is created for a business role, all roles are determined in which employees of the selected business role are also members.

To display detailed information about assignments

  • To display the report, select the base object from the navigation or the result list and select the report Overview of all assignments.
  • Use the Used by button in the report's toolbar to select the role class (department, location, business role or IT Shop structure) for which you determine if roles exist in which there are employees with the selected base object.

    All the roles of the selected role class are shown. The color coding of elements identifies the role in which there are employees with the selected base object. The meaning of the report control elements is explained in a separate legend. In the report's toolbar, click to open the legend.

  • Double-click a control to show all child roles belonging to the selected role.
  • By clicking the button in a role's control, you display all employees in the role with the base object.
  • Use the small arrow next to to start a wizard that allows you to bookmark this list of employee for tracking. This creates a new business role to which the employees are assigned.

Appendix: Configuration Parameters for Managing Unix

Appendix: Configuration Parameters for Managing Unix

The following configuration parameters are additionally available in One Identity Manager after the module has been installed.

Table 43: Configuration parameter
Configuration parameter Description

TargetSystem\Unix

Preprocessor relevant configuration parameter to control the component parts for the managing Unix-based custom target systems. If the parameter is set, the target system components are available. Changes to the parameter require recompiling the database.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts

This configuration parameter permits configuration of user account data.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword

This configuration parameter specifies whether a random generated password is issued when a new user account is added. The password must contain at least those character sets that are defined in the password policy.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword\SendTo

This configuration parameter specifies to which employee the email with the random generated password should be sent (manager cost center/department/location/role, employee’s manager or XUserInserted). If no recipient can be found, the password is sent to the address stored in the configuration parameter "TargetSystem\Unix\DefaultAddress".

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword\SendTo\
MailTemplateAccountName

This configuration parameter contains the name of the mail template sent to inform users about their initial login data (name of the user account). Use the mail template "Employee - new account created".

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword\SendTo\
MailTemplatePassword

This configuration parameter contains the name of the mail template sent to inform users about their initial login data (initial password). Use the mail template "Employee - initial password for new user account".

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
MailTemplateDefaultValues

This configuration parameter contains the mail template used to send notifications if default IT operating data mapping values are used for automatically creating a user account. Use the mail template "Employee - new user account with default properties created".

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
PrivilegedAccount
This configuration parameter allows configuration of settings for privileged Unix user accounts.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
PrivilegedAccount\
AccountName_Postfix

This configuration parameter contains the postfix for formatting login names for privileged user accounts.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
PrivilegedAccount\
AccountName_Prefix

This configuration parameter contains the prefix for formatting login names for privileged user accounts.

TargetSystem\Unix\DefaultAddress

The configuration parameter contains the recipient's default email address for sending notifications about actions in the target system.

TargetSystem\Unix\
MaxFullsyncDuration

This configuration parameter contains the maximum runtime for synchronization. No recalculation of group memberships by the DBQueue Processor can take place during this time. If the maximum runtime is exceeded, group membership are recalculated.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonAutoDefault

This configuration parameter specifies the mode for automatic employee assignment for user accounts added to the database outside synchronization.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonAutoDisabledAccounts

This configuration parameters specifies whether employees are automatically assigned to disable user accounts. User accounts do not obtain an account definition.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonAutoFullSync

This configuration parameter specifies the mode for automatic employee assignment for user accounts added to or updated in the database through synchronization.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonExcludeList

List of all user accounts for which automatic employee assignment should not take place. Names given in a pipe (|) delimited list that is handled as a regular search pattern.

Example:

Root

Appendix: Default Project Template for Unix-Based Target Systems

Appendix: Default Project Template for Unix-Based Target Systems

A default project template ensures that all required information is added in the One Identity Manager. This includes mappings, workflows and the synchronization base object. If you do not use a default project template you must declare the synchronization base object in One Identity Manager yourself.

Use a default project template for initially setting up the synchronization project. For custom implementations, you can extend the synchronization project with the .Synchronization Editor

The template uses mappings for the following schema types.
