Assigning Applications to Workdesks and Employees

You can assign applications directly or indirectly to employees or workdesks. In the case of indirect assignment, employees (workdesks, hardware) and applications are grouped into hierarchical roles. The number of applications assigned to an employee (or workdesk) is calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance.

Prerequisites for indirect assignment to employees
  • Assignment of employees and applications is permitted for role classes (department, cost center, location or business role).
Prerequisites for indirect assignment to workdesks
  • Assignment of workdesks and applications is permitted for role classes (department, cost center, location or business role).

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